About Barbara

Barbara has lived in Sherburne County for 47 years. She and her husband, Dave, live on a small farm in Elk River that has been in the family for more than 100 years. They have three grown children and five grandchildren, all of whom live close by. Barb is a registered nurse and a licensed attorney. She has worked in home care and hospice for more than 30 years, primarily in management and government affairs. She previously served one term on the Elk River City Council. Working in her garden, baking, involvement in church activities, and spending time with family and friends are her favorite activities. She is looking forward to serving the residents of Sherburne County as commissioner.
