Culver City Chamber of Commerce President Steven Rose commented on her service to the community, "Barbara, through her career always was eager to learn a new skill that would benefit herself, the Chamber and its membership. Barbara's voice was always calm in the middle of a storm when it became very hectic around major Chamber events. She truly became knowledgeable on how active the Chamber is in the community and the benefits it brings to Culver City."
