Barbara Stokes: Businesswoman and Mom

The Chief Executive Officer of Green Structure Homes, Barbara Stokes, has made a huge impact in society with the disaster relief construction that is offered by her company. When she and her husband formed the company based in Huntsville, Alabama, they knew that they wanted to be able to help people as well as make a profit. This led Barbara Stokes to be involved in the disaster relief efforts in Texas following Hurricane Harvey.
