NWB-Haiti Staff

Sharon Barefoot, BSN, RN - Volunteer Coordinator

Sharon Barefoot, BSN, RN – Volunteer Coordinator

Sharon understands the ins and outs of volunteering in the culture and climate. During her 1-year stint of volunteering as a registered nurse in 2011 in Vaudreuil, Haiti (located just beyond Cap-Haitien), she connected to NWB along with many other NGOs to collaborate patient care. If she doesn’t know the answer to a NWB question, she’ll get you in touch with someone who knows. She’s worked as a nurse since 2002 in urban and rural settings in Wisconsin and New Mexico and it’s currently her pleasure to work on the only certified American Burn Association Burn Unit in Colorado where she recently moved with her husband. She loves trail running, yoga and biking. If she’s not on the move, you might find her at home knitting, baking or gardening. If you’ve volunteered with NWB in the past, Sharon would love to hear feedback about the preparation process and if you’re about to go she’s the one who’s going to send a lot of valuable material to prepare you!
