Barbara fell into the business while singing and dancing in a troupe while she was in college in the dental field. She was asked to audition for a production which included some acting. with no headshot or acting resume, she ended up booking the role with a cast of notables including the award-winning Bonnie and Terry Turner, (snl, third rock, 70’show).  With her start in Atlanta, SAG card in hand, she headed out to Los Angeles with encouragement from Neil Simon and ray stark.  

 

She is now back in Atlanta after a quick stint in LA (30+ years). She returns on occasion to coach her clients, act, and shoot photography.
