Barbara Tucker

I was raised in the Washington, D.C. suburbs, moved to Southeast Tennessee for college, stayed, earned two Master's and Ed.D., and have worked in higher education for over 40 years. I have worked with campus ministry and feel privileged to have done so. I love students and teaching. I came to Christ (His doing) when I was 15 and cannot imagine how my life would be otherwise. This website is amazing.
