Saginaw County Board of Commissioners recently presented Barb with the WAVE Award!

WAVE stands for Work, Achievement, Valiant, Effort to highlight excellence at work and in our community.

“She’s the most phenomenal person you don’t want to meet, only because that means the most horrific thing has happened in your life. It means you are now part of a club that you never wanted to be a member of…a survivor of suicide.

The instant you meet her, that’s when you grab on to her hand and she will guide you back to the light. It is because Barb has personally felt this raw pain from her own devastating losses that she understands the range of emotions that survivors of suicide will face.”
