 Barbara Greenbaum, moderator, is a native of New Jersey who graduated from Skidmore College with a BA in English.  After many years, she received an MSW from the Wurtzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University.  She was a practicing psychotherapist in Westfield, NJ for 20 years.  During this time, Barbara began hosting a TV program called “Change and Challenges” dealing with women’s issues, where favorite guests included Gloria Steinem, Senator Bill Bradley, and former Governor Christy Todd Whitman.  After moving to the Berkshires full time, she hosted a local TV program called “The Way We Are in the Berkshires” and continued her conversation-style show with many important cultural and political persons in the area.  This then morphed into “Conversations With…,” a popular course in the OLLI schedule for many years.
