Barb moved to Boulder in 1980 and instantly fell in love with Colorado! She began working with Hewlett Packard in 1981 and enjoyed living in Fort Collins for the next ten years. In 1991 Barb had a perfect opportunity to return to school when HP started downsizing. She had recently remodeled her home and discovered she had a passion for design. Colorado State University was one of the premier Interior Design schools that is FIDER (Foundation for Interior Design Research) accredited and was right in her own backyard. Barb studied design and architecture in London between her junior and senior year at CSU and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design.
After graduating, Barb moved to Denver and worked at The Great Indoors. It was a wonderful place to learn and grow as it was common to work on 20+ projects at once. After moving to Conifer in 2009, the drive became a bit much and she was fortunate to find a design position at The Kitchen and Bath Center in Evergreen. Barb stayed with them until they closed in 2013 when she moved on to another local firm until finally deciding it was time to open her own Design Studio with Catherine Berndl, an excellent business woman and interior designer. Meadow Creek Design Studio is the manifestation of 20+ years design experience and education. It’s a blessing to do what you love every day. When Barb isn't working she's riding her horse, reading, boating or just enjoying Colorado's beautiful weather!
