Barbara began working at Goldray in 1998 after graduating with distinction from ACAD, where she studied visual communications and glass. She worked in the plant learning about each department before moving into R&D. There, she was able to use her glass knowledge to help develop new processes in design as well as establish procedures for Goldray's lab and factory. Barbara has successfully balanced being a product designer for Goldray while maintaining a career as a visual artist. Her favourite thing about working at Goldray is the opportunity to be involved in company improvement. If Barbara could describe herself in only one word, it would be intuitive.
