Barbara handles all of the administrative duties of the Jacob's Well Counseling Center. 


My husband Bruce and I have been married for nearly 23 years. We were a little older than most when we got married but God's plan was best as we each waited for the right person. We enjoy traveling, movies, cooking and baking. (We especially enjoy eating whatever we bake!)

We have two children, twins! They are 20 years old. Our son, Sam, is a junior at Marquette University in Milwaukee, studying Digital Media. Our daughter, Janny, is a sophomore at St. Norbert College in DePere, studying Psychology and Biology. We see them often and love to hear about their lives and challenges.

fun facts

What do you do in your free time?

  • I enjoy reading, baking, and am learning to become a better quilter. That particular hobby has taught me that you don't need to be especially good at something to enjoy it! I also spend time outdoors marveling at the beauty created from Bruce's green thumb. That guy is quite the gardener.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

  • Galatians 1:10 "Am I now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a servant of Christ."

If you could meet anyone in history who would it be?

  • Corrie Ten Boom
