Barb started her American journey after relocating from British Columbia to California, as a young RN, over 30 years ago. The move was meant to be a one- or two-year adventure, but after finding the love of her life, having two amazing children, and continuing with an extremely rewarding career in healthcare …the adventure continues! Barb began her storytelling journey through listening to the many amazing podcasts celebrating true storytelling. She found a local live event hosted by Capital Storytelling in Sacramento and was hooked! After participating in in-person and virtual classes, as well as open mic and curated events, Barb applied and was accepted to the Capital Storytelling Ambassadors program. Through this amazing opportunity, Barb has been bringing the power of true storytelling to her colleagues in healthcare ever since!
