My Story

Barbara has been married for over 30 years. At age over 60, Barbara has a daughter in her 20's, a son in his 20's and a teenage son.

Barbara's teenage son lives with severe Autism.

A dynamic public speaker and presenter, Barbara has taught sales, marketing, public relations and promotions for Centennial College as well as the International Academy of Advertising, Merchandising and Design.    Barbara also led  life-transforming workshops called  “It’s All About Attitude” = A Plan for Success for Living …  “Attitude equals Altitude” = Reaching New Heights in Personal Performance . and “Empowering Parents” = How and When to Take Charge. These workshops were available to businesses and educational institutions. The entire concept is based on the belief that small changes in Attitude can translate into large changes in life – in financial success … in happiness … in emotional and physical wellbeing … in relationships … in contribution to society … and in our everyday performance as partners and parents.

In her most important program Autism for Caregivers, Healthcare and Autism Service Providers and Families, Barbara offers  an incredible amount of crucial information for caregivers,  healthcare providers and other service providers who are working with … or wanting to work with children, adolescents, young adults and adults living with Autism. Upon completion of this certification course,  providers can be considered to be  “Autism  Care Specialists” with “Autism Friendly Practices & Environments.”


Barbara will also share her own powerful personal story of her family’s journey with Autism with her son.
