About Barbara

I became a Caregiver by helping a friend in need. I am a compassionate person, and discovered that I get a great deal of gratification knowing that I can help someone in need. I am proud of the fact that feeding someone a healthy nutritious meal will help them to heal and feel stronger. I have been in the food and nutriton industy for many years, but my hands on cooking for someone that needs nourishment has been the most rewarding. Barbara is a caring person that loves to cook and nurture her family. She has been a nutritional counselor and educator for over 25 years, raised two children and has two grandchildren. Taking care of people has always come easy to me. I enjoy helping others to look and feel better. I write a blog www.wholebodyconciousness about the benefits of healthy eating, wrote a book Five Days to a Healthy Life and have a web site
