Barbara worked on projects that targeted the use of water efficient fixtures in new developments in Ontario several years prior to the plumbing code change that made these fixtures mandatory. She continues to undertake leading edge projects in water conservation and waste reduction.

Barbara has particular strengths in research and assessments, frequently pinpointing the barriers to change in a community or an organization with the use of innovative assessment tools. She has adapted social sciences assessment tools for use in the environmental field.
