Barbara became a Villager in 2019 and has lived in Florida since 1982. Relocating to Florida upon graduation from Indiana University, Bloomington, she worked for Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department for a year and then went on to the private sector working as a sales representative for a swimming pool filtration company.

Barbara had found her niche in sales and in the swimming pool business. For 28 years she traveled the State of Florida, as well as other states, selling chemicals and equipment for American and Australian manufacturers. In 2005 Barbara sold her sales rep agency and she and her husband now split their time each year between Florida and Idaho.

With her experience educating businesses on products and why they should sell them, she is hoping to do the same with M2M by convincing businesses of the value of participating in The VHA program, and, in the process, offering more value for VHA members.

When they are in The Villages, Barbara and Neil play pickleball, participate in classes, bike ride, golf, swim and just enjoy everything The Villages has to offer. We are truly “Living the Dream” here in The Villages!
