Rowena Barker
Family Engagement Coordinator, Deaf-blind Project
Rowena was a collegiate tennis player in the Pacific Northwest before moving to NC and enjoying a career in textile sales. With the arrival of her children, she began her decades-long commitment to the special needs community. Rowena and her husband, John, have three young adult children (two of whom have special needs) and two dogs and enjoy traveling, long walks, good books, and humor. Due to her personal journey and steep learning curve, Rowena is passionate about helping other families advocate for their children and obtaining the best outcomes possible.
