Barb has two grown children who were educated in Coquitlam and she has lived, worked and volunteered in Coquitlam for more than 30 years.

As an elected School Trustee for Coquitlam I represent the needs of students, parents and the community.

My community work has given me a large and diverse social network and a good understanding of the community and its needs.

Over the course of my career I have worked in industries such as education, technology, and health care. I have organized national conferences, chaired countless meetings, developed policies, and acted as liaison to multinational companies.
