About the President
Forty years ago Dr. Barnett immigrated to the United States from the small island of St.Vincent in the Caribbean. She had no money, no career guidance and no resources, but she had a BIG DREAM — to get the best education this country had to offer. She had no idea how that was going to happen, however she was willing to do whatever was necessary to achieve her BIG DREAM.
Working in a pen factory inserting the ink in ball point pens, cleaning houses, filing documents for an insurance company, waiting tables in a convalescent home were some of the jobs she took to get through college. Her determination and struggles paid off. She ultimately earned a doctorate in leadership from Columbia University.
After 30 years in public education, she retired to focus on her next BIG DREAM: to become an entrepreneur. Her business is focused on providing mentoring, teleseminars, retreats and events to help boomer women take action to make their dreams come true.
In her interactions and mentoring boomer women she discovered that many of them had put their dreams on the back burner and were stuck, afraid, lacked self-confidence and self-esteem to awaken their dreams.
The DREAM BIG-LIVE BIG Event is the STARTING point for helping baby boomer women take action. They will leave this event prepared and armed with confidence and strategic action plans to achieve any personal or professional dream.
