Sister Barbara Smith

I was the first in my family to attend a university and graduated with a zoology degree in 1983. I am also the youngest of three children; but having an adventurous spirit, I moved away from my family after college and have never returned to live in southern Illinois. From being an equine caretaker to working in veterinary services and  research tech, I am now a religious sister in a Benedictine monastic community, I love to be active, yet silent, engaging and curious, prayerful and giving of self. I like to read, sled, hike, kayak, ski and grow microgreens.,
