Born and raised in the United Methodist Church, Barb grew up in Sergeantsville, New Jersey. She graduated from Hood College with a Bachelor of Science in Home Economics, and holds a Master’s degree from Cornell University. While at Cornell, she met and married Keith, and both of their sons were born in Ithaca, New York.
Barb has worked in a variety of administrative and educational support positions. Most recently, she served as the Program Coordinator for the Other Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Penn State University. She has always found joy in serving in the church in lay leadership and teaching roles. Disciple Bible studies have been especially important to her spiritual growth and formation.
Barb and Keith moved to Calabash in May — leaving the snowblower and cold winters behind in central Pennsylvania. In addition to being a Christ follower, Barb loves spending time with friends and family, hanging out at the beach, taking long walks, and reading.
