What others say...

Barb's strongest asset is her ability to facilitate and effectively manage meetings

and groups of people. She also excelled in training teams, leading work groups

and collaborating with others to resolve any issues to find that balance

between the healthcare sector and governmental regulatory division of which she served.

-- William Herrick

retired environmental services professional

"As Barb's manager for several years, I relied on her skills, wisdom and

experience to carry out the DNR's medical waste management and reduction program.  

Barb was an outstanding employee and will make a spectacular consultant, given

her deep knowledge of the technical issues, her understanding of people

and organizations, and her work ethic."
