Barbara Klide was born in Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC. She graduated from Golden Gate University, San Francisco with the degree of Masters of Business Administration and was awarded the Certificate in Graphic Design from the University of California, Extension, Davis. Her various careers in business include her current position of over 25 years as Director of Marketing for Quest Technology Management in Roseville, California. She is a dedicated ballroom dancer at the Silver level through Arthur Murray International, Inc., Carmichael, California. Barbara and her longtime partner, Brian, reside in Northern California where they periodically rescue, foster, and adopt out cats. They are the recipients of the oft awarded “foster failure” badge for giving in to kitty demands to remain in the foster residence, staking claim as their very own forever home—a most satisfactory arrangement for all.
