After FC Kansas City ceased operations after the 2017 season, Bowen was officially added to the roster of the Utah Royals FC on February 8, 2018. She appeared in 19 matches for Utah in 2018, the Royals finished in 5th place and did not qualify for the playoffs.
Born in Auckland, Bowen became the youngest player to represent New Zealand at recognised international level when she played in a New Zealand U-17 match against Australia U-17 on her 14th birthday in 2008. Later that year she travelled to the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup where she made a solitary appearance as a late substitute in a 3-1 win over Colombia. She again represented New Zealand in 2010, this time as captain at the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Trinidad and Tobago.
She featured in two of New Zealand's three matches at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in Germany and in all three of her country's matches at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada. After being an alternate at the 2012 Olympics, Bowen was named to the 18-player roster for the 2016 Olympics in Rio where she appeared in all 3 matches for New Zealand.
In 2019, Bowen participated in her third World Cup. She played every minute of New Zealand's three group stage matches at the World Cup in France, they lost all three matches and did not advance to the knockout round.
