Back in the '70s, Barbara looked at the mostly male lawyers she was working for and said to herself: "I could do that!" And she did, receiving her Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Oregon in December, 1982. She was admitted to the Oregon State Bar in April, 1983, and practiced family and criminal law for five years before moving on to other pursuits. (Don't mess with us, though, she's still a member of the Bar.)
Since 1992, Barbara has been the theater critic for Willamette Week, a Portland, Oregon newsweekly, where she's occasionally written other work, including a piece entitled Dangerous Dining: A guide to Portland's restaurants of death, which won a 1994 Society of Professional Journalists Region X non-daily Category 13a (Lifestyle, food, consumer, home) Award. Barbara also served as the Assistant and Literary Editor for Plant's Review of Books, our critically-acclaimed magazine. She's one of the strong creative forces behind Moshofsky/Plant Creative Services.
