Barbara is a trustee of the World Medicine Charitable Trust. She first joined the Chaparda Project in 2014 and has been on two subsequent visits.

Barbara has worked in a diverse range of industries, from direct marketing companies involved in stock market flotation; to UK’s largest energy generator during the Y2K programme; to the MOD.  She was directly involved in specifying and managing business systems and databases to ensure the production of precise management information and the support of operational activities.

She gained a BSc Hons degree in Acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine in Reading and has been in practice for 11 years.  Barbara is also a Tuina practitioner and is a member of the British Acupuncture Council.  Providing palliative care has been a strong thread in Barbara’s work since qualifying, and she also has particular interest in nutrition, treating stress/anxiety and pre/post conception.

In 2017 Barbara moved from a full-time practice in North Wilts to Shropshire, where she is busy setting up her new practice.  She is a keen Nordic walker having walked extensively in UK, Spain, Portugal, and Morocco.
