Barbara Hribar is an experienced educator, coach and leader.  Barbara’s experience in education began as a ninth grade English teacher and was soon enhanced with her own four children in six years.

While her children were young, she wrote a Sunday school program, trained Sunday school teachers and taught preschoolers. Later she led spiritual classes for teens.  She worked as a substitute teacher and completed her certification with the Montessori Method of Education through the Saint Nicholas School in  England with accreditation at Cleveland State University. 


During her search for better health for herself and her family, she became a certified herbalist.  Soon after, she wrote a seminar guidebook for Nature’s Sunshine and taught a health and business school while founding her wholistic health company, Youthful Living, Inc.


After her marriage of many years ended, she wrote an inspirational booklet titled "If I Were an Angel".  This was one tool that helped her to successfully manage stress, adjust and grow into a new way of life.


As an ordained Unity minister she pioneered and guided a loving, inclusive, vibrant Unity ministry. She is also a Grief Recovery Specialist. Barbara became a wholistic life coach through Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. Continuing her education includes certificates in parent training that leads others to healthier happier relationships with children.


As a HeartMath® Certified Trainer, she instructs individuals and groups in Stress Management, integrating body, mind and spirit.  

These years of experience have led Barbara to a deep passion for helping others live in harmony with themselves, others and especially with their children.

From Barbara:  I believe in YOU!  I believe that YOU can learn to live a Joyful Life, no matter what!  I believe that You can be Happy for No Reason® (Marci Shimoff)!  I believe that YOU can De-Stress!  I believe that YOU can learn how to integrate body, mind and spirit, bringing YOU the freedom to live a joyful life.  From my education and experience, I offer YOU inspiration, information, and individualization with a broad spectrum of holistic perspectives.  Utilizing what I have to offer YOU, YOU will be more aligned with a proactive, positive, pleasant, productive way of life.  I believe in YOU!
