Prior to her current endeavors, Dr. Owens worked as an internist in private practice in Quincy, Florida from 1984 until 1986, after which she joined the Digestive Health Center, a gastroenterology clinic in Pascagoula, Mississippi from 1986 until 1994. Following that, she worked as an emergency room and preventive health physician at the Keesler Veterans Medical Center, located in Biloxi, Mississippi from 1994 until 1996 and then returned, serving in the same position at the Digestive Health Center in Pascagoula from 1996 until 2001. Additionally, she served as an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Geriatrics at Wayne State University from 2006 until 2007.

In an effort to remain at the forefront of her challenging specialty, she maintains memberships with several professional organizations, including the American Osteopathic Association, the American Medical Association, the American Geriatrics Society, and the Society of Hospital Medicine. She is also a Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Internists (FACOI) and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP). 

Her acclaimed career in medicine began in 1979 when she earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree from the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in East Lansing, Michigan. Thereafter, she went on to complete her internship and residency training with the Michigan Osteopathic Medical Center in Detroit.  

Before long, the doctor became board-certified in internal medicine, hospital medicine, and geriatric medicine by the American College of Osteopathic Internists – an organization that provides board certification to qualified DOs who specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease in adults. 

Internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists. They are skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. In addition, they care for hospitalized and ambulatory patients and may play a major role in teaching and research.

Geriatrics, or geriatric medicine, is a specialty that focuses on the health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. More than other physicians, geriatricians deal with diseases and conditions that often accompany old age, such as Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, memory loss, chronic heart and lung disease, incontinence, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, as well as vision and hearing problems.

Hospital medicine is a medical specialty that exists in some countries as a branch of internal medicine, dealing with the care of acutely ill hospitalized patients. Internists whose primary professional focus is caring for hospitalized patients only while they are in the hospital are called hospitalists. The term Locums Tenens is a Latin phrase that means “to hold the place of,  or to substitute for”. A Locums Tenens Hospitalist is a hospitalist who works in place of a regularly staffed hospitalist who is absent due to vacation or illness, or when a hospital is short-staffed. 

As for her personal background, Dr. Owens was born in Detroit, Michigan to Jimmie Edwards Owens Jr. and Anne Elizabeth Owens. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, reading, weight lifting, as well as playing the violin and the piano. Her favorite professional publications are the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine and the Annals of Internal Medicine.
