Barb feels the best part of coaching is the relationships built over the years and helping dentists find their own success.

After Barb earner her RDH in 1988, she worked in a private practice office in a small town in Indiana where she and her husband raised their two sons. As her children grew, Barb went back to school to earn her Bachelors Degree in Dental Health Education and a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership. She was a clinical instructor and teacher in the Dental Hygiene program at Indiana University Purdue Fort Wayne (IPFW).

When her sons were in college, Barb and her husband moved to Arizona where she had the distinct fortune to meet Dr. Michael Schuster, a well-known practice management leader. Barb spent 12+ years working alongside Dr. Schuster as a coach. She also worked as a hygienist, assistant and administrative person in his dental practice.

After moving to Tennessee, Barb met author Mike Michalowicz – author of Profit First. She has since become a Mastery Level Certified Profit First Professional Coach & Profit Adviser. Barb’s dedication to the dental profession led her to create a unique program just for dentists using the Profit First Principles, intertwined with all the knowledge she has acquired over the years while working with dentists.

Barb and her husband Kevin met in elementary school. Yes, that’s correct… She was in first grade and he was in third.

They grew up on neighboring farms in Indiana where their families shared much time together. It wasn’t until high school that their love for one another blossomed. After all these years, they are still loving each other and life together! One of their favorite things to do is dance…they’ve been dancing for more than 30 years…and Nashville is a great place for live music & dancing!

Both of their sons are married to beautiful red headed ladies and together have given Barb & Kevin three awesome little grandsons. These little dudes are the light of their lives!
