Celebrating Women's History Month with Barbara Ball

Celebrating Women's History Month with Barbara Ball!

Throughout the month of March we will be celebrating our talented team members at Manchester.

Today we are highlighting Human Resources Generalist, Barbara Ball. Barbara Ball was born into a loving family, but tragedy struck when her parents were taken from her far too soon. Undaunted, Barb stepped up and took on the responsibility of raising her younger siblings. After experiencing the immense love and care that her parents had shown her, she was determined to pass that same love and care on to her siblings, her own children, and those in need. Even through the difficulties she faced, Barb never lost her faith in God or her belief that God has a divine purpose in everything.

Barb's kindness and gentle spirit has made her a well-respected and beloved figure in her community. She has served her team members at AdventHealth with a kind, compassionate attitude, and servant’s heart for 47 years. Her dedication and hard work have earned her a place in AdventHealth Manchester's history as one of the longest tenures at the facility.

Barb's past and present impact reminds us all that with faith and love, anything is possible. She is an inspiration to women everywhere, showing them that they too can overcome the challenges this life brings and positively impact their circles of influence.
