Barb Ellis PRSS

I live at Mud Fork with my two dogs Mandi and CiCi and my cat Coolio. l am a Meemaw to my four year old grandson, Isaiah Seth. I’m member of the Chapmanville United Baptist Church where I serve as a co youth leader and Sunday School teacher.

I am a PRSS at Mountain Laurel Integrated Healthcare and represent Jobs and Hope in Logan and Mingo Counties. I’m also a trainer for MLIH instructing Adult First Aid, CPR and AED, Bloodborne Pathogens, Naloxone and Crisis Response Intervention (CR1) which I also wrote. I serve as a co- facilitator of our Safety Team.

I am one of twenty-five facilitators of the McShin Foundation PRSS Training for the State of WV. I’m also a facilitator for the WV Leadership Academy and WRAP. I have recently accepted a place on the Leadership Team for Southern WV Rural Substance Abuse Consortium, and I’m excited to be joining the board of the Prevention Coalition.

I’m very appreciative of every opportunity I’ve been given, and make it my mission in life to be there when a person goes down the seventh time to be the hand that helps them up the eighth.
