Barbara has been coaching volleyball on and off for 30 years. When volleyball was in it’s infancy in the Richmond area, she was at the forefront in developing her high school teams, running volleyball camps for all players in the area, and coaches clinics, to bring up the level of play in the area. Then she developed the boy’s side of the RVC youth program.

Barbara enjoys camping with her family in the summers. She enjoys cooking, reading, photography, and gardening. She looks forward to retirement to spend more time traveling around the world to meet more wonderful people.
