Lisa Mick Barnett
Lisa Barnett was born and raised in Kansas City. After graduating from Shawnee Mission East, she headed for Iowa State University to major in biology. There, Lisa discovered she also had a passion for teaching, which led her to the University of Missouri – Kansas City to earn a teaching degree.
For nearly 20 years, Lisa worked as a biology teacher in the upper school at The Pembroke Hill School, Kansas City, Missouri. She served as upper school science chair during the last five years of her teaching career. Lisa retired from Pembroke Hill in May 2022, joining Care Haven full-time just over a month later, in July.
Lisa was one of the company’s original family owners, keeping up with significant developments and serving as a valuable sounding board. Since joining the Care Haven operating team full-time, Lisa is chiefly engaged in strategic planning, financial reporting and property management. She jumps in to handle whatever issues arise, from managing payroll to coordinating grounds care and addressing wi-fi outages.
In other words, Lisa does whatever is necessary to see that Care Haven continues providing the best Alzheimer’s care in Kansas City.
