Dr. Rowe is a board-certified fellow with the American Board of Obstetricians Gynecologist. Her professional interests include all consideration for women’s health and primary care across every life stage. She has a passion for caring for adolescents and making sure they are empowered through education to navigate this sometimes-difficult transition in life. She enjoys providing preconception and infertility care that one day leads to following that family for obstetric care. She is trained in managing high-risk pregnancies and sees each baby as her own until the birthday celebration. She has a passion for preventative medicine in reducing risks of disease across the life span for women. She sees every transition in life as an opportunity to address current and future health. She enjoys a focus in hormone treatment and a graceful “change of life” when it comes to menopause.

In this process, she enjoys collaborating with other physicians to maintain a multidisciplinary team should you need one.
Dr. Rowe is also involved in her family, friends, and community. It is her village that has empowered her even more to stay true to this vocation to help and serve others. Having grown up in Morehead City, she has made Greenville her home away from home with her family. Dr. Rowe enjoys spending time with her family and friends, both human and non-human alike. She enjoys participating in fitness activities, many outdoor activities including anything to do with the water, gardening and winter skiing. She enjoys reading, especially the philosophical.

She enjoys keeping busy with her family. She is proud of her husband, Michael, and three children Kathleen, Jack and Alexander and two grandchildren Stetson and Hudson. She would not go without mentioning their beloved German Shepard – Kuno, their Vidant born feline – Mr. Stantonsburg, a self-maintained koi pond and wildlife galore around their house. If you come to know Dr. Rowe, you will know her family.
