Sean Bowie and his family first moved to Chandler in 1994, drawn to the area’s strong public schools and quality way of life.
A product of the Kyrene Elementary and Tempe Union High School districts, Sean graduated from Mountain Pointe High School in 2002. Sean then went on to ASU, receiving degrees in Political Science and History.
Since graduating from ASU, Sean has fought for good, sensible public policy at all levels of government-- from the local level all the way to Capitol Hill. Sean has worked with stakeholders and elected officials on a range of projects, including education reform, expanding access to health care and protecting Social Security. Through these endeavors, he has sought to make government more effective and responsive to the needs of a 21st-century economy.
After receiving his Master’s degree in Public Policy and Management from Carnegie Mellon University in 2013, Sean worked as a management consultant, working with Fortune 500 companies from across the globe.
Sean currently works for the Provost's office at his alma mater, Arizona State University. There, he works daily on issues including expanding need-based financial aid for working Arizona families, increasing resources for first-year students, and expanding online educational opportunities and increasing access for students.
With his unique combination of skills, experience, and education, along with his roots in our community, Sean is ready to step in on day one and be an effective legislator for our district.
Sean is the oldest of four children, with his entire family calling LD18 home. He currently lives in Ahwatukee.
