Barbara has been at Cornell 30 years and has spent the majority of her career working with Graduate and Professional students.  The two favorite things of her job is meeting the new students and seeing Cornell through their eyes for the first time.  The second thing is then seeing these former new students fulfill their goal to complete their program and celebrate Graduation with their family and friends.  Outside of Cornell Barbara loves to travel and have adventures with her newly wed husband, Chuck.  Helping hundreds of Graduate Students has prepared her to help her own daughter, Samantha, as she starts her own grad career in the fall of 2019.  Barbara is an animal lover and is fortunate to share her home with to very large cats, Manuel Gato and Marshal Mallow.
