She has also been a guest on local TV shows on healthy living. Barbara specializes in health coaching and writing that is grounded in science yet approachable to the general public.

She worked as an environmental scientist, most notably organizing environmental projects for the Department of Defense. During her time in this role, she coordinated permits, wrote environmental articles, coordinated with military-base media to spread the word on new environmental projects, and ran community focus groups. From there, she branched out into working for environmental consulting firms. “I loved managing large-scale projects; however, I wanted to get involved in more ‘people’ work,” she says, “so I went on to earn a doctorate in health psychology from Alliant International University, with further training in Ericksonian hypnosis and peak-performance coaching.” Barbara has a rare blend of clinical training, health coaching, writing and research experience that allows her to disseminate complex mental health concepts in an engaging and user-friendly manner for the general public.
