Barbara was hired on June 16,2004 for the Benefits department. She came to Hanson and Ryan with 6 years’ experience in the health insurance field from First Union in Wayne (formerly Tribus). She has worked in the Benefits department at Hanson and Ryan ever since.
After graduating from Strayer University in Washington DC with a major in Merchandising and Retail Management, she worked in retail management for several companies over the years, ending her retail career at Fortunoff in Wayne, NJ. From there she went into merchandizing for M & M Mars, and then eventually settled into the insurance industry after being introduced to it by a member of her husband’s family.
Barbara and her husband Bob split their time between their home in Verona and their condo in Point Pleasant. They have a daughter Casey.
Fun fact: Barbara has a picture of Harry Connick Jr. kissing her on her cheek displayed on her refrigerator in Verona.
