She has been working in the Willis school district since early 2012 as a substitute school nurse in the elementary and secondary school settings. She was the school nurse for Parmley Elementary from February 2012 thru May 2012. She is very enthusiastic about her career at Brabham Middle School and hopes to be a resource for health information and care for students and their parents.
Mrs. Barley attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth and graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Nursing with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She worked as an operating room nurse for the regional level I trauma center and teaching hospital, University Hospital in Albuquerque and later specialized as an ophthalmic operating room nurse for a private hospital.
