Barbara Heffernan is our Information Technology (IT) Consultant who supports all KBRS offices across the region.
Barbara has extensive experience in IT, including having been network administrator for the well-known Atlantic Canadian law firm Stewart McKelvey for six years. She managed to side-step the hustle and bustle of the city for six years, by moving to the beautiful Annapolis Valley, enjoying a role as network administrator for ACA Cooperative Ltd.
Following a brief hiatus from full-time employment, Barbara embarked on running her own consulting business, Your RhITe (Right-hand Information Technology expert). She now provides contractual service to her clients, including KBRS, and prides herself on being prompt to respond to a support question or issue, making her clients extremely happy.
Barbara received her Bachelor of Commerce from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 1996, Undergraduate Certificate in International Business from ESC Rennes School of Business in 1995 and Diploma in Applied Information Technology from Information Technology Institute in 1997. She has also completed many technical courses to continue building her skill base.
A great day for Barbara is one that presents a challenge or a technical puzzle she can solve, and where she can learn something new. She enjoys helping other people understand and grapple with technological complexities. Her colleagues at KBRS can vouch for the fact she excels at finding the ideal solutions for her clients.
Time with family and friends is very important to Barbara. She is very active in various sports whenever she finds herself with a rare moment of spare time, including: softball, soccer, basketball, golf, skiing and billiards. Barb's softball team actually won Nationals in the summer of 2011. She loves to laugh and is quick to make those around her smile.
