Caroline Owen

Caroline graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Ohio State University, earning  Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology. After a first career as a psychologist, she changed fields when her family moved to New Zealand. She earned a Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of Canterbury and worked as a medical social worker at  several hospitals in Christchurch.

When her family relocated to Santa Fe, she began working at the Cancer Foundation for New Mexico. Since 2008, she has been part of the Foundation’s exciting growth and expansion of services. She loves the rewarding experience of supporting patients and helping them to access resources during their cancer journey. She continues to learn and gain inspiration from interacting with patients and families at the Regional Cancer Center. She also coordinates the Foundation’s cadre of volunteers who do important work in the chemotherapy suite, supporting patients and their care givers, as well as helping the nursing staff.

In her spare time, she is an avid reader, gardener, knitter, and animal lover.
