About Barb

Barb is a servant leader who spends her time developing programming that guides others to discover their passions, listen to their guiding voices, speak their truths, and continue to work to make their dreams come true. She accomplishes this with honest conversations, continued learning, leadership development, and grace.

As a survivor of a domestic violent relationship, Barb knows firsthand the power of support, encouragement, and hope. She works to give that to others – to empower them to make the changes they want and need to make and to live the life they dream of living.

A Wisconsin native, Barb followed her heart to North Carolina and has been married to her husband, Doug, for 16 years. They live in a house full of laughter, love and pet fur courtesy of their six rescue pets. Barb also enjoys gardening and woodworking. She is a John Maxwell certified life coach, speaker, trainer, and voracious reader.
