Meet The Team
Founder, Publisher & CEO
When Joe was a teenager, he remembers telling his parents that someday he'd help tell the world about the "apple remedy" that saved his dad's life. Over 20 years later, he's now helped over a million people cure various health problems using safe, natural remedies. A former accountant, Joe founded Barton Publishing in 2004 from a tiny basement office with no windows. He lives outside of Sioux Falls, SD with his wife and four growing boys. "Joe's family is passionate about the 'least of these'. Learn more about their care for foster children."
Medical & Nutrition Advisor
Dr. Scott left the traditional world of medicine to start his own clinic in Santa Barbara county in California. He graduated from UCLA Medical School, but grew frustrated with "the system" which didn't allow much for alternative remedies - even though he knew they were more effective with less side effects. He is now the director of The Integrative Medicine Center of Santa Barbara, which balances conventional medicine with alternative healing modalities to achieve optimal wellness. He and his wife have 14 children.
Chief Operations Officer
Kevin wears many hats as COO. He loves to implement systems and processes that help everyone on the team work more efficiently. When he's not working, he's enjoying his family, cycling or working out...or trying to help others in some way! He's a pastor and church planter “on the side” and recently planted a church in Sioux Falls, SD.

Sheila hails from the Philippines where she works “overnight” to provide the latest stats that keep Barton Publishing operating at its best. Sheila enjoys reading—particularly about health and wellness, parenting, and life hacks. She finds pleasure in a variety of music, but gets her weekly “therapy” from folding and arranging clothes. Her biggest blessing is her children, and she can also be found blessing other children in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.
