Healthy Scholars Learn Better

My name is Kristen Barber and I am a registered nurse with a background in pediatric nursing. I am privileged to serve as the school nurse for John Adams Academy at the Lincoln, El Dorado Hills and Roseville Campuses. It was an honor to join the JAA team in the 2018-2019 school year. My role as school nurse is to keep our scholars safe and healthy while at school and encourage them to move forward making healthy choices for a lifetime. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me with your health related concerns or questions. You can reach me via email at: or leave me a voicemail at 916-260-4818.
Humbly and Respectfully, 
Kristen Barber, RN, BSN, PHN
