In 1979 she and her husband, Steve, moved to the Lake of the Ozarks, and in 1981 she began teaching and cuing rounds
there. She presently cues for the Merry Rounders, Millstone Wheeler, Ozark Lakers, Jean & Queens, and Ozark Whirlers.
She has supported the Missouri State Square and Round Dance Festival in a highly professional and dedicated manner. Her exceptional talent as a cuer has helped make each of the State Dances a huge success.
On many occasions, Barbara has unselfishly given of her self and her time to cue dances with the knowledge that there was no compensation to be received other than the gratitude of the dancers and the knowledge that she had helped in a sincere way to help make others happy. Barbara has a genuine love of teaching and learning, plus a sparkling personality.
Barbara not only cues rounds, but is very active in promoting square dancing.
Barbara's hobbies include golfing.
Barbara and Steve have two daughters, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
