Women in Business 2013: Ellen Barker, Greenville
Barker’s passion is designing life care plans for people who live with a neurologic disorder or have suffered a catastrophic neurologic injury such as stroke. That means reviewing all medical records and related information necessary to develop a comprehensive summary of current and future needs, with costs. Certified by the University of Florida Life Care Planning Program, a lifelong nurse, Barker is the author of three award-winning textbooks and more than 85 articles published in professional journals, and a nationally recognized speaker and lecturer. That written legacy is as important to her as knowing she has helped people.
