About:

Barb is one of 6 (yes six) Barbaras at Trinity MCC, so is often referred to by her last name.  Barb was born in Montana with a father that was a World War 1 veteran & a mother who had been a high school principal.  She entered college to become a nurse, met a guy, got married, changed careers & went to work for the telephone company.  Two children later, she became a manager of a telephone company location in the town that housed Montana State Prison.

Twenty seven years later, a divorce, becoming a corporate trainer, moving to Arizona, meeting Barbara & as they say………the rest is history.  She and Barbara have been with MCC since 1989 and Barb has served on the Board of 3 MCC churches in different states.

Barb and Barbara trained people in 14 states, & loved it.  Four years later, a buyout was offered, they took it as both of their mothers were in poor health.  They moved to Florida, built a house, continued their faith journey in Trinity MCC, and enjoy their 6 grandchildren, 4 great grandkids, & 3 dogs.  As she says ‘we are blessed’.
