Why I love Hope

Barbara knows that Hope is a place of incredible community. It’s a place with lots of people who care and encourage, and it offers rich opportunities for growth in various ways. A native of New York state, her own experience as a student allowed her to thrive and flourish, and this is why she is excited to pass this same experience on to others.

Outside the college

Barbara and her husband, Carl, live in Holland. They enjoy outdoor adventure, travel and summers in Maine.
