Dr. Owens was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, while her father, also a pediatrician, was in residency there. She subsequently grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana and moved to Texas in high school where she attended the Texas Academy of Math and Science at the University of North Texas. She received her Bachelor of Science in Biology at the University of Texas at Dallas. Dr. Owens received her M.D. From Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. Dr. Owens then moved to San Diego, California where she completed her pediatric residency at University of California at San Diego and served as chief resident in 2003-2004. She then moved to Austin where she has worked with the neonatology group at Seton Medical center, Seton Northwest Hospital and Brackenridge Hospital for three years. During that time, Dr. Owens has enjoyed taking care of well and sick newborns (and their worried parents!). She has also served on the Perinatal Council at Seton Medical Center. Dr. Owens is board-certified in pediatrics and is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Her professional interests include breastfeeding, nutrition, sports and exercise as well as developmental concerns. She regularly volunteers at Austin's Volunteer Healthcare Clinic.
