Barbara is a licensed D.C. tour guide, licensed NYC tour guide, ITMI certified tour director, and a certified guide of the Guild of Professional Tour Guides of Washington, D.C. In 2014, Barbara left her desk job in higher ed. to pursue her dream of becoming a Washington D.C. tour guide. Since then she has never looked back. Barbara loves our nation’s capital and she is passionate about sharing it with both visitors and locals.

For Barbara, one of the most interesting and important sites in D.C. is the U.S. Capitol. Since our country’s humble beginnings, our ‘Temple of Democracy’ has been the stage for many, often cantankerous, debates over issues that have shaped our lives and given us all an opportunity to pursue our dreams. Barbara would love for you to join her on a tour of the U.S. Capitol, so she may share with you intriguing bits of history as well as stories of a few fascinating mysteries of this most recognized building in the world.
