Meet our Senior Leaders / Bobbie Doyle - Senior Community Health Nurse Supervisor - Biography
Barbara (Bobbie) Doyle is currently a Senior Community Health Nurse Supervisor with the Volusia County Health Department as well as the clinic manager of the New Smyrna Beach Health Center. She also coordinates the nursing administrative functions of the Health Services Division. Doyle earned her undergraduate degree in Nursing from Towson State University in 1976 and then earned a Masters of Science degree in Nursing Administration and General Psychiatry from the University of Maryland in 1982.
Doyle has held numerous leadership positions in public and private sectors concentrating in the fields of corporate administration, managed health care delivery, and health care cost containment. She also has been involved in nursing program leadership with curricular development and instruction and has served as chairperson for several college School of Nursing programs. She began her career in public health upon joining the Volusia County Health Department in 2000 as the Senior Community Health Nurse Supervisor for the DeLand and Deltona clinics.
Doyle has always had a passion to serve the community. She has served on numerous boards and has worked many community events. This includes being a board member of the American Cancer Society – Daytona Chapter, Our Children First, Volusia Constituency For Children, Relay for Life (Daytona, Melbourne), and the Kidney Early Intervention Program (Melbourne).
Doyle also served as the Director of Nurses for the Rape Crisis Center from 1991 to 2001. It was here that Doyle developed the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Program for Volusia County. It was Doyle’s interest in improving the quality of services available to victims that led her to complete a certificate program in Forensics Science from the University of Oklahoma, Tulsa in 1995. The information that she learned here was information she was able to integrate into the program she created for Volusia County. This program was successful and Doyle was asked to present this training at the Dr Dorothy Hicks Symposium: Interdisciplinary Rape Science Training Institute for several years.
Currently, Doyle is involved with Mountain of Hope. This is an organization out of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church of Lake Mary that supports and operates a year round clinic.
Doyle’s hope is that she can continue to pursue the improvement of the health of our community through the Volusia County Health Department and its partners.
