Spotlight on Barbara King

Barbara began her nursing career as a certified nursing assistant shortly after high school. She completed an associate degree at Belleville Area College in Illinois in 1985 and baccalaureate degrees in nursing and education/psychology in 1987 at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville. After nearly 20 years of experience as a registered nurse, she completed her MSN in 2004 at University of Missouri-Columbia. She’s board certified in family practice by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Barbara has worked in rural, urban and federally-qualified health centers as well as in employee worksite, urgent and convenient care settings. She currently works at the state employee clinic in Santa Fe.

In addition to her nursing career, Barbara has more than 25 years’ experience as a licensed massage therapist, Healing Touch Practitioner, aromatherapist and yoga instructor. She has taught American Heart Association CPR classes since 1991 and offers healthcare provider and community classes in Santa Fe.

After more than a decade as an FNP in Illinois and Missouri, Barbara re-located to New Mexico in 2016. In addition to the raw beauty of the landscape, sunny days, blue skies and lower humidity, she wanted the independent practice enjoyed by NPs in New Mexico. Having practiced in one of the most restrictive states in the US, she appreciates and enjoys both the responsibilities and freedoms of independent practice.

Barbara likes to bike, hike, practice yoga, sew, cook, crochet and dance. In addition, she serves on the board of the Labyrinth Resource Group of Santa Fe. The calming, meditative experience of walking labyrinths, as well as helping to plan, build and maintain them, has been a long-term interest to Barbara. She also enjoys hand drumming and regularly attends drum gatherings in Santa Fe.
