Barbra grew up in Huntsville Alabama which back in the 1950's was a small farming town. “Being one of four daughters born to a farmer, we grew up working in the fields as if we were sons. I loved the smell of the outdoors, especially in the spring when the rich ground was broke for spring planting. The sweet smell of wild honeysuckle in the summer air and the smell of fresh cotton in the fall as it was picked and headed for the huge cotton gins will always be some of my most cherished memories. Farm life was not easy but it taught me never to be afraid of hard work and it set deep rooted values that have been priceless through my career". Barbra’s twitter page starts out “Farm girl raised in Alabama, worked my butt off in the cotton fields growing up, thought I hated every minute of it growing up, I wouldn't take a million bucks now for what I learned”!
