Barbara H. Peterson is retired from the California Department of Corrections, where she worked as a Correctional Officer at Folsom Prison. She was one of the first females to work at the facility in this classification.
After retirement, she went to college online to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Business, and graduated with honors. The most valuable thing she received from her time with UOP was a realization that her life’s passion is writing. Now her business degree sits in her desk drawer, and she counts herself in the category of Writer/Activist.
Barbara lives on a small ranch in Oregon with her husband, where they raise geese, chickens, Navajo Churro sheep, Oggie Dog, a variety of cats, and an opinionated Macaw named Rita. She believes that self-sufficiency and localization of food sources is necessary to survive the coming depression. To this end, she hopes that sharing information with others of like mind will lead to a brighter future where people reach out to each other and form small communities in which food is grown locally, and trade is established between neighbors.
