Barbara is a native of Alexandria, Virginia and comes from a long line of storytellers. Barbara first took the stage in 6th grade when she wrote a play that the school performed, and she narrated the play. Since that time, she never met a microphone that she didn’t like. Barbara tells true personal stories and has performed with Better Said Than Done, Story District, and The Moth Story Slam. When she isn’t weaving words into stories she can be found weaving and creating beautiful handwoven textiles.
