Home About Barbara Calendar Shows Email Blog


From Superior Court Clerk to newspaper reporter and broadcast news anchor, I have had an active career in public service. I have served on advisory boards, governing boards, directory boards and coalition boards. I have been a Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, General Manager, and Director of Community Relations.

I have hosted radio shows dealing with healing and recovery, personal growth, community issues and promoted people’s projects, businesses, and endeavors. Most of the time, the radio shows ran concurrently…

I had six or more shows running every week. Another media outlet beckoned and I sharpened my pencil to work as a feature reporter for our local bi-weekly newspaper, the White Mountain Independent. I had a feature column for over a year, but soon found myself working as an investigative reporter. That transition ultimately led to my winning an award from the Arizona Newspaper Association in 2016 for investigative journalism. Also in 2016 I launched the paper's video news as news writer and anchor while still serving as a multi-faceted reporter.

In 2017 I took my skills as a chamber director, a radio talk show host, reporter and news anchor ​to Navopache Electric Cooperative as their first communications specialist. In this public relations/marketing role, I not only handle the co-op website, Facebook page, newsletter, scholarship and Washington Youth Tour programs, but also work with member businesses on economic development, still doing what I love - serving my community.
