Barbra is an educator at heart. Her passion is teaching others by conveying technical knowledge in a way that is easily understood. Barbra founded Start From Scratch Social MediaTM in 2010 as a means of expressing that passion.
Barbra owned and operated a successful independent staffing company in Silicon Valley during the hi-tech revolution. She worked with many start-ups and acquired a fascination with technology and became an eager student. As Barbra expanded her knowledge, her path became clear – teaching others there is a virtual world to discover and explore!

Today Barbra weaves her technical skills, knowledge of social media, experience as an educator and desire to help people into Start From Scratch Social Media.
