Barb says the greatest rewards from her career have come from community service. In her decades at ABC 4 she was instrumental in raising millions of dollars for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and thousands for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. She also acted as a spokesperson for Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure.
She has covered innumerable stories during her career including 9/11, the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping, and homecoming, the Crandall Canyon Mine disaster, medical and science breakthroughs, and breaking news.
Barb is now looking forward to a new career, on the other side of the lens, at the University of Utah.
