Barbara Howard grew up in Southern NH and graduated from Timberlane Regional High School. She married Ray Howard and has 4 children. Barbara was a stay at home mom for nearly ten years. When all her children were entered in school, Barbara began working in schools as a para-professional with non verbal and/or behavioral children. Barbara was an avid volunteer at her children’s school and has been awarded Volunteer of the Year twice for her service. After fifteen years, Barbara began working at an Area Agency as a Case Manager serving adults with dual diagnosis/disabilities and families who had children with disabilities. Barbara became a Certified Educational Advocate. After five years, being offered the chance to manage the Home of Your Own Program, a program specializing in helping disabled adults to purchase homes, Barbara left the Area Agency. Barbara became a certified credit counselor, home ownership counselor and post purchase counselor with NeighborWorks America. Barbara won a national Award for Post Purchase Counseling in 2007. When that program was closed due to lack of funding, she was hired at the Brain Injury Association of NH, where she is currently employed as a Resource Specialist and a Transition Coordinator for individuals living with brain injury. In 2014, Barbara received one of five awards from the Brain Injury Association of America, the Award for Excellence in Advocacy.
