Barbara A. Palmer APRN-C
I was raised in the inner city of Cleveland, Ohio, the second of four siblings, by my mother who was our sole provider. A belief that I embraced from my mom daily was, “You must work ten times harder than the next person in order to make it in life. "
My sophomore year at Baldwin Wallace College, I withdrew from college, got married and relocated to California. Marriage and motherhood of a beautiful daughter and then later becoming a divorcee intensified my single parenting challenges. Nonetheless, I returned to college to complete my degree. One of my favorite bible verses Philippians 4:13. During that time, I worked several jobs including, nursing home, hospitals and city governments. I even completed two years of Army ROTC which also helped to pay my tuition. I also completed basic training at Fort Knox, Kentucky, where former Secretary of State Colin Powell, was a surprise guest at my graduation.
After completing my B.S. in Biology 1992 at Cleveland State University, I conducted research with my immunology professor and mentor, Dr. Tobili Sam-Yellowe on Malaria.
Subsequently, 1993, I was employed as a pharmaceutical sales representative. I spent more than 15 years learning and educating health care professionals of the pharmaceuticals in the treatment of such conditions as: depression, hypertension, erectile dysfunction, diabetes and many more. This experience proved to be pivotal to the foundation of my medical career.
In the beginning of 2004, I furthered my education and obtained the following degree’s at Cleveland State University:
M.S. in Biology 2004.
B.S.N. in Nursing 2011.
M.S.N Family Medicine South University of Tampa 2017.
