Barbara has been a singer, performer, and teacher for many years, both in Whitehorse and in the Pacific Northwest. She has appeared on CMT, Breakfast TV, Bravo, and toured internationally as a performer/songwriter.
She grew up the daughter of a choir director and has always loved anything to do with voice. This has helped her transition to becoming the Whitehorse Community Choir's acting conductor in 2005, when she founded the Neptunes, the mostly men's choir. She is continually exploring and learning both conducting and voice, attending two years at the BC Choral conducting class and studying with Bruce Pullen (UBC), Adam Con (U of Georgia Southern), and Bruce Browne (PSU).
Barbara currently resides in the lovely suburb of Riverdale, teaches voice & piano, is exploring blues & jazz on voice and sax, and runs a B&B in the summer.
