Meet our team
Lodge Director of Housekeeping
“Treat others as you would want to be treated.”
Since our Lodge opened in 2012, Barb has helped make sure everything runs smoothly and efficiently. Prior to joining the Swinomish team, Barb spent more than 30 years working in the lodging industry. After managing at The Hotel Group for 10-plus years, she worked at Freestone Inn in Mazama, Washington as the Director of Housekeeping. Barb’s extensive background in the hospitality industry has given her valuable insight on trends and efficient hotel operation strategies. At home, Barb’s “co-pilot” is her Maltese who always accompanies her on trips and helps navigate the roads. During the summer, you might find her at home gardening or throwing a picnic for her friends and family. Barb’s core values are honesty, loyalty and trustworthiness. She believes in treating others as you want to be treated, so that’s why she makes sure every guest feels like family when they visit the Lodge.
