Dottie spent the first 40 years of her life on Long Island, N.Y. and was baptized, confirmed and married at Grace Lutheran Church in Uniondale. She was preceded in death by her siblings, Charles R. Havens, Glenn R. Havens and Audrey A. Kramer. Dottie graduated from New York Institute of Technology with a B.S. in business administration and a M.P.S. in industrial psychology. In 1987, she was awarded a Ph.D. in organizational psychology from Walden University. Throughout her academic career, Dr. Nimal received numerous academic awards, including graduating with high honors and receiving the New York State Educators Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award. For 20 years, Dottie worked in the training and development field for the federal government in the New York area, serving in supervisory and management positions in U.S. Customer Service, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Health and Human Services and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. She ran her own consulting firm, ATLO, providing assistance to businesses and agencies based on her research in "Attitudes Toward Learning Opportunities" and her expertise in organization psychology.
