Palmeira Leadership

Gen Barter

Gen Barter

Chief Executive Officer

After working in the home health care field for over 8 years, Genevieve Barter knew she had found a career and an industry that she loved. Along the way, she had learned there are so many avenues of health care that don’t make people better. But she found hope in home health care – which she considers the last facet of health services based on human touch – that did help patients improve through education, compassion and goal-focused care. She was intrigued by the gap between mom and pop-run home health companies and the larger, more impersonal conglomerates. She saw a need in the community and an opportunity to change the industry and make an impact. So she bought the company she worked for and began expanding services into multiple states. The idea of Palmeira Home Health Services was born. She drew from her family’s medical background – her father is a retired ophthalmologist in California, her political science education from the University of San Diego and her past sales experience to make Palmeira Health Services into one of the top home health service companies in the market today.
