Barbara is a sociology major and a psychology minor. She is the mother of three grown children and the proud grandmother of two grandsons. Wright State University is somewhat a family tradition in her family. Two daughters, as well as a son-in-law, are all Wright State alumni. Barbara is passionate about gun violence and is planning to use what she has learned here at Wright State as a means of addressing the social and psychological issues that lead to gun violence. In her spare time, Barbara enjoys hiking in Ohio’s state parks, spending time with family and watching the Chicago Cubs play baseball.
