Barbara Campbell

Executive Director, Healthcare

Barbara Campbell graduated from Pharmacy school at the University of Minnesota in 1993 and has worked in pharmacy operations and management for over 20 years.  Over this time she developed an interest in working with individuals to provide real, lasting changes to health and well- being that go beyond medications.  This led her to continue her education and  in 2008 she completed her certification as a clinical nutritionist.

In 2010, she had the opportunity to serve in Haiti right after the devastating earthquake. This was truly a life changing experience. Fueled by her faith and desire to follow God’s direction for her life, she continued volunteering by leading medical mission trips to Haiti. In 2012 she accepted a position with Mission of Hope as their Director of Medical Operations.  Over the past 5 years she has gained valuable experience working in resource challenged areas and a passion for supporting local healthcare professionals.  Knowing that poor health hinders a person’s ability to fully live life and maximize potential, she has the desire to see high quality health care available to everyone.

Barbara recently joined the ReLink Global Health team and is very excited for the opportunity to take what she has learned and work toward implementing lasting changes in healthcare delivery throughout the world.  She brings with her the strong desire to work with organizations in developing high quality, sustainable healthcare delivery systems.

Mark Liegel

Regional Manager - Southern Ohio

Mark Liegel graduated summa cum laude with a BSBA from Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH in 1984 and worked in sales, consulting and international management for IBM for over 25 years. While at IBM,  Mark won several awards for sales and customer service. 

During the last 5 years at IBM, Mark’s faith grew tremendously and after a mission trip to South Africa in 2006, Mark realized his real purpose was in ministry. In 2009, Mark joined Crossroads Church in Cincinnati as Director, Spiritual Growth. In 2012, Mark became Director of First Impressions. However, shortly after joining Crossroads Church, Mark began experiencing debilitating back & neck pain. This began a journey of eleven spine surgeries over 5 years and an addiction to pain medication. In 2015, Mark attended a partial hospitalization program in Nashville at Vanderbilt and classes at the Osher Center to learn how to manage his chronic pain without opioids.

Mark knew he wanted to make something good out of his difficult journey. This led Mark to begin working with the homeless and others less fortunate, including those suffering with Substance Use Disorder. After obtaining his Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant (CDCA) certification in 2017, Mark began working at an outpatient treatment center co-leading groups and in community outreach.

 Mark resides in Cincinnati and continues to work with the homeless and others less fortunate. He is also studying to become a certified Peer Recovery Supporter. Mark will celebrate his 3rd year of sobriety in May 2019.

Patty Cooper

Regional Manager - Central Ohio

After 15 years as an educator, Patty Cooper joins the relink.org team with great enthusiasm for connecting people to the resources that are going to help them succeed on their road to recovery.

Patty was drawn to education through a desire to help improve the lives of others and she devoted my talents to helping her students become the best versions of themselves; first teaching English to speakers of other languages, then as a high school English teacher. During her last year in the classroom, she took her seniors on a yearlong service learning journey and was inspired by the work of the various non-profit organizations with whom they collaborated. It was thrilling to be a project manager for these groups of students who developed fundraising events, created products, and served as volunteers for a variety of causes. This work has motivated her to bring her collaboration and group management talents from the classroom to relink.org to serve as a community outreach manager.

As a former high school teacher, who has seen firsthand the devastating effects that addiction can have on both the individual and their loved ones, Patty is thrilled to join in the crusade to help bring resources to those who need them.
