Krista Barber is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at our St. Augustine location and Flagler Hospital partner location. Born and raised in Jacksonville, FL, Krista earned her Bachelors and Masters in Social Work from Florida State University.
As an Oncology Social Worker, the prospect of building relationships with her patients in a team setting are just a few of the things that drew her to CSNF. “Being able to provide support and resources to help patients reach their treatment goals is that much more rewarding when you are able to work with a group of people who are as passionate about their jobs as you are,” she says. When it comes to her philosophy on helping patients, she says “I believe in meeting the patient where they are and addressing their unique needs. I also believe that full family involvement is very important.” While she has no personal connections to cancer, Krista views each of her patients like family, and treats them as such as she helps them navigate through one of the most difficult times in their lives.
When not at work, Krista enjoys spending time with her friends and family, traveling, going to the beach, and riding her bike.
