Born in Roanoke, Va., but raised in Hedgesville, W. Va., Dr. Bowen-Pasfield knew early on that she wanted to be an obstetrician/gynecologist. Her father was a pulmonologist, so being around the hospital was always a part of her life.
During her undergraduate years at North Carolina State University (NCSU), Dr. Bowen-Pasfield led a women’s health class at the Student Health Center and later earned a job at Planned Parenthood working as a health care assistant, educator and pregnancy counselor. Through these experiences, she discovered how much she enjoyed spending time with and educating female patients so they were better prepared to make informed health care decisions.
After receiving her medical degree at West Virginia University School of Medicine, Dr. Bowen-Pasfield worked for several years as an obstetrician/gynecologist with Southern Pines Women’s Health Center in Southern Pines, N.C., which included time spent in the hospital and in the private practice setting. Her clinical interests include routine obstetrics care and deliveries, contraceptive counseling and management (including contraceptive implants), prevention and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, and well-care visits with a focus on primary prevention. Dr. Bowen-Pasfield also enjoys working with adolescent patients and counseling them on how to make good choices when it comes to health care.
Married since 2004, Dr. Bowen-Pasfield and her husband met during their time at NCSU. Together they have two young sons, Jack and Beckett. In her spare time, Dr. Bowen-Pasfield enjoys reading, practicing yoga and playing disk golf.
