Barbara is a forward thinker with a.natural pulse for what people like--and don't. She was one of the first people I met when I moved to LA ... 30 years ago and from the get-go she impressed me with her smarts, entrepreneurial spirit and clear leadership abilities. She is strong, independent, decisive, creative and always willing to try something new or take a risk. Barbara is a woman who I trust completely, both as a friend and occasional business associate. Over the years she has created a wide and impressive circle of friends and business associates who also value her friendship, creativity and business acumen. She is without a doubt one of the most interesting women I've had the privilege of knowing and it is always a joy and a guaranteed great time to be around and/or spend time with her. As a woman she is constantly evolving and always looking for new adventures and challenges that will inspire and enrich her personally and professionally. I'm proud to call her my friend because not only is she a woman of great substance, but I trust her judgement implicitly-- and I can only say that about a handful of other women I have known throughout my life.
