Pat Barron is a patient-focused social worker who understands the value of family helping through difficult times. Growing up in a large family in South Carolina, Barron was raised to understand the importance of helping others. That sense of service is why is he is proud to be counselor to the Tri-State community.
Barron started as an orderly in a hospital when he was a 19-year-old college student. He loved working in the hospital, and knew early on he didn't want any job that didn't allow him to help others. After graduation he worked for a church, and eventually attended seminary to become a pastor. His heart kept taking him back to social work, a dream he'd always had. More than a decade after becoming a social worker, he is still just as passionate as the day he started.
