Who am I?

I was born in Raleigh, NC and stayed in NC for college and professionally until 2015. I went to school for communication/business and worked in the corporate/education world from 2006 to 2014.

I started as a marketing intern at NC State University and then worked with Entrepreneurship students which then inspired me to open my own business. Wine & Design Charlotte became my life from 2011 to 2014 and I loved every minute. We sold the business which has led me to where I am now. I do contract writing, marketing, and social media work and have been become a certified PADI Scuba Instructor and day sailing captain.

I love traveling, exploring and writing about my adventures so I decided why not make that my full-time job. ItsJustBarbs Travel is my newest adventure. I can help you book the trip of your dreams anywhere in the world.

I also love bikinis, cats, and a nice glass of bubbly!
