Barbara dedicated herself to serving families even before she moved to North Carolina and became a lawyer. For a decade she taught at-risk high school students. She also worked with both victims and perpetrators of domestic violence, and served as a probation officer with the Washington State Department of Corrections.
Barbara graduated from the North Carolina Central School of Law with honors in 2005. She was an Associate with the family law firm of Donna Ambler Davis in Chapel Hill before she established her own family law practice in May, 2008.
Barbara works to establish strong, positive relationships with her clients and helps them navigate the emotional upheavals of divorce, achieve financial stability, and reduce the stress that divorce places on children. Whether in negotiation or litigation, she is a tough and determined advocate working to protect the best interests of her clients. In 2013, she completed training as a collaborative family law attorney as well as training for Guardian Ad Litem and Parenting Coordinator for the Triangle.
Barbara is a member of the North Carolina State Bar, the North Carolina Bar Association, the Durham County Bar Association, the Orange County Bar Association, and the 14th Judicial District Bar.
Barbara enjoys hiking, yoga, and reading, and has been active rescuing and fostering stray and neglected dogs in the Triangle area. She takes great pleasure in exploring all of the great activities – parks, museums, theatres, restaurants – and meeting all the interesting people that Durham has to offer, and she is excited about the dynamic changes occurring in her adopted city.
