Kris Kington-Barker

Kris Kington-Barker has been the Executive Director for Hospice of San Luis Obispo (SLO) County in California since 2010. She was drawn to the work of INELDA when seeking a way for Hospice SLO to more fully embrace the spiritual, social, and emotional aspects of end of life care and a way to incorporate its work and training into Hospice of San Luis Obispo County. Since 2015, the organization has had trained doulas and has collaborated with other medical hospices and home health agencies providing palliative care in incorporating their services.   Prior to her work at Hospice SLO County, Kris worked in the fields of mental health, rural clinic education, and acute care hospital planning, development, operations and administration.
