Barbara was born in a very small town in Arkansas, where she spent most of her childhood. She moved to Texas when she was a teenager, where she graduated from Arlington High School.
She loves animals, all things chocolate, trying new experiences, cooking, and engaging her creative side with crafts. However, none of those things compare to her enormous love for her family, especially her husband and two sons. Of course, the Reed family would not be complete without their dogs, Cookie and Jughead.
One thing that Barbara truly struggles with is how there is so much hate in the world. She believes her reason for being on this beautiful Earth is to spread a little love and joy to every person she meets.
