More about Barb...

I was always a go-getter. Upon finishing my studies in psychology from Tufts and Oxford Universities, I did the crazy thing – went to Hollywood and became an actor on a prime-time NBC TV Series. First job out of the gate. 

More roles ensued, but the more I worked, the more I realized my brain would be of better use behind the camera. I became a studio executive, working for Paramount, Disney, and eventually running a division of the new movie studio, DreamWorks. From there, I was promoted to SVP’ing two dot.com companies at Bill Gross’s Idealab.

Wild success followed by anyone’s standards… but so did depletion, burnout, and round-the-clock stress.

I wanted career success for sure, but I wanted to lead sustainably, with integrity and heart. I also wanted to stay true to my personal life commitments – which included marriage and children, physical health, rich friendships, and other creative and meaningful endeavors.

I feverishly began studying the tenets of the most respected luminaries in the arenas of peak performance, inspired leadership, boundaries, and balance.

This material was so game-changing that I decided to dedicate my life to it! I went back to grad school for an M.A. in Spiritual Psychology, and spent years studying with extraordinary coaches, mentors, psychologists, and in transformational certifications from which I have developed my philosophy, methodology, and unparalleled program of change.

Imagine ascending with authority in your career, while weaving a life of significance, fulfilment, and beautiful balance.
