Barrett Crosby is the QA/QI Director for Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness. Barrett was born and raised in the wilds of Alaska. He left Alaska to attend Oregon State University and decided to stay, beginning his career in behavioral health in 2004. Barrett spent many years in Portland providing care and managing Mental Health licensed residential treatment. After close to a decade Barrett had the opportunity to work for the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) licensing and certification team. While at OHA he also engaged in operations and policy work for the Health Systems Division writing a number of the administrative rules under which Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness operates. Most recently Barrett worked as the Senior Director of Quality Management and Regulatory Services, HIPAA Privacy Officer, and Compliance Officer for Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare in Portland. After 18 years of city life, Barrett and his family made the decision to leave Portland and return to the wide-open spaces and relative peace of rural life. He now resides in upstate NY (15 minutes from Canada) and works remotely for us. Barrett is excited to bring his knowledge and experience to the table in support of our work and the work staff does every day.
