Occupation: I taught elementary and early childhood school for 30 years before retiring recently. I always felt fortunate to be able to do something that I loved. My students inspired me often, as I, hopefully, inspired them in return.
Interests and hobbies: I love to read. I enjoy snow skiing, dancing, traveling, and spending time with my family. Since retiring, I have become an avid fan of the Food Network and enjoy trying out new recipes, especially when my family is home.
Skin type: Dry
Basic skincare routine: I am never without Rich Moisture during the day and Extra Nighttime Moisture and Concentrated Eye Cream at night. These products keep my skin smooth and hydrated and help defy visible signs of aging. I have introduced DHC’s men’s moisturizer to my son and he has been pleasantly surprised at the difference in his skin tone. Olive Virgin Oil is a favorite product of mine. It makes my skin look and feel healthy. The products I use make me feel I am doing the best I can to feel healthy and maintain my appearance and self-esteem.
I admire: The women of my generation—I feel we have paved the way for today’s generation of women. We have faced many difficult challenges in balancing career and family, demanding equal opportunities in the business world and in the home. We have learned to make ourselves a priority, and as a result, we take better care of ourselves by maintaining our bodies, minds and appearances and strive to be the very best we can be.
Necessary extravagance: Good chocolate!
Something you’d never guess about me: My secret desire to be an actress.
One skill every woman should have: Every woman should have a basic set of carpenter tools and know how to use them.
A favorite memory: Spring skiing at Smuggler’s Notch in Vermont with my family. Also, when my oldest grandchild, Addison, who is now 3, turned to me and said, “I love you.”
Barbara’s skincare tip: “Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!”
