In her early career she worked in Home Health. From 1984 to 1996 she volunteered as an intermediate level EMT Captain with Rescue, Inc., based in Brattleboro, VT.
Barbara has been with the Brattleboro Retreat since 1983 and has served in a number of programs including adult inpatient, nursing education and recruitment, and admissions. She has served as the staff nurse for the Uniformed Services Program since its inception in August 2009.
"I have been a nurse at the Uniformed Service Program since it began, and feel honored to play a part in the healing process of so many brave men and women. I work with people who put their lives on the line everyday for total strangers, yet do not ask for help for themselves. To each and every individual who reaches out to us for help—you are truly a hero in my eyes."
