Barb spent many years working at The Ontario Human Rights Commission and, at the age of 54, began her training at The Centre for Training in Psychotherapy to become a psychotherapist. Psychotherapy was her passion and she worked right up until she became ill at 86 years old.
Barb rode horses when she was young, taught herself to ski, became a ski instructor, taught herself to windsurf at age 50, played golf and loved being part of the Ladies Golf Club, where she also played bridge and was able to do so right up to the week of her death. In addition to this, Barbara was an Astrologer. She wrote an astrology book which was published in three languages. She was part of a CBC television show, Beyond Reason, in the ‘70s, had an astrology call-in show on CHFI and was an interviewer on a cable channel where she got to interview Buckminster Fuller.
