While a single working mom, Barbara was on the founding team of several local high-tech companies which have created hundreds of local jobs.
I am President Pro Tem of the San Diego City Council, representing the 1st District. I serve as Chair of the Budget and Government Efficiency Committee and as Vice Chair of the Rules Committee and the Committee on Public Safety and Livable Neighborhoods.
Prior to serving in office, I was a high-tech entrepreneur and community leader. I worked my way through college and grad school, earning a Master’s Degree in Business from Harvard. While a single working mom, I was on the founding team of two local high-tech companies, creating hundreds of local jobs.
A leader in the San Diego business community, I taught entrepreneurship at UCSD and founded Athena San Diego, which supports the advancement of women in STEM businesses.
As a business journalist, I spotlighted the vibrant small business community that supports our City’s economy. I served as President of the Board of the Children's Museum of San Diego, as Vice Chair of the San Diego Jewish Community Foundation and on the board of Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest.
I have lived in San Diego for almost 40 years. I am married to Neil Senturia, raised my two daughters here, and am a proud grandmother.
I will bring leadership that puts solutions for San Diegans first, prioritizes fiscal discipline, stands up to the special interests, treats all residents and communities fairly, and creates comprehensive solutions to long-standing problems.
Hundreds of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents are helping Barbara because they know she will clean up the mess at City Hall.
