Barbara and I have worked on a few creative projects together such as a flyer for a New England Bollywood Band and a corporate innovation poster. I am amazed at how quickly Barbara can understand the goals and objectives of the project and come up with beautiful designs that tell a perfect story. Barbara is also very effective in communicating her design choices and always provides multiple options that make it easy to pick and choose. Barbara has a great eye for aesthetics, has great taste and focuses on providing a streamlined user experience. Grab her at the first opportunity; you cannot go wrong!

Barbara has done an amazing job directing youth musical theater.  She has a great sense for what individual actors can do and never asks too much nor too little from the cast members.  Her choreography in a production of "Annie" was a great example of how she can create a scene that is both a joy to watch for the audience and a lot of fun to rehearse and perform for the actors.  She is extraordinarily organized but at the same time works well with others who are less detail oriented.  We were very lucky to have her.

Ms. Barbara is a very passionate director, when she is at rehearsal you know she is doing what she loves! She is very professional and pushes actors to the best of their abilities. Ms. Barbara is great with kids and I hope I get to work with her again some day.

It was great meeting and getting to know Barbara during our kid's elementary school production of Mary Poppins. Her background in theater and art were very valuable to us. It was great to see her working with all the kids and choreograph their dance numbers. I loved the beautiful pieces she designed and created for our set. She is talented, highly organized and involved in the whole process. We were so lucky to have her!

Barbara is great with kids. Her patience and vision shines through. I've been part of two large productions with Barbara, and the feedback from kids in the plays and also people who saw it thought it was world class and couldn't believe that an elementary school was executing at such a high level. Thank you, Barbara for giving our kids such a great memory and life-long experience.
