Prior to joining Community Ventures, Barb was a Controller for a senior living community in Florida. She also has over 24 years of experience in the mortgage banking industry and has worked in all aspects of the lending process. Her past experiences and knowledge have brought her back to this industry. Her fondest memories are of helping first-time homebuyers realize their dream of homeownership. It is her passion to help people in whatever capacity she can provide. In her spare time she enjoys crocheting hats for newborn babies and donating them to a local hospital but, most of all, she loves spending time with her family and their newest addition, a granddaughter, born in 2018. She and her husband have been married for 45 years and have 2 daughters.
