President, Founder, Chair
Barbara was born in Chicago, IL, raised in Pulaski, TN, and has been living in the Nashville area for the past 23 years. She is a wife and mother of four and a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. She's worked in healthcare administration for 22 years for a number of prestigious insurance companies.
Barbara has actively worked with her church, Ephesian Primitive Baptist Church, were her passion for working with under privileged kids first developed. Over the course of a decade, Barbara was being prepared for a place she couldn't see occurring. When the reveal finally happened, disbelief set in. However, a Devine conviction transpired and it would not stop what was perfectly planned. Obedience becomes the only response.
"If you do whatever I command you and walk in obedience to me and do what is right in my eyes by obeying my decrees and commands...I will be with you." (1 Kings 11:38)
WWAU was formed.
