Barbara and her husband Rich joined Trinity in 2011 after her early retirement from a 25-year career with Sears in Kitchen Design and Appliance Sales. "We agreed to become a true part of Trinity, committing to involvement in Worship and Community." Barbara's early interests included the Welcome Committee, Catechesis, and Art Classes, which soon developed into 10 years as Chairwoman of The Arts Commission, Artists Among Us and founder of Trinity's Artisan Fair. Barbara has served on several committees, most recently she was involved with facilitating forums as part of the process of developing the Trinity Profile, Capital Campaign Drive, Trinity Profile and Vision committees, The Bridge Exhibit, and served on the Canon for Cathedral Life search committee. Barbara continues to chair the annual Dean's Cup Golf Tournament and is currently a member of the Music Commission and represents Trinity as a Diocesan delegate for the Columbia Convocation.
Barbara's additional interests are golf, serving on the Portland EWGA Board and League Coordinator, Forest Hills Golf, travel, photography, and will help form the Durham Community Emergency Preparedness Committee.
"I continue to be comforted and blessed to find deepening Spiritual Faith, friendship and awakened curiosities in Trinity. I look forward to this new opportunity to serve and grow further into our Trinity Vision."
