Founder & President
Barbie started her career in the Public Relations and Executive Recruiting industries. In 2000 Barbie founded Selective Search® with the desire to provide North America with its first fully offline, confidential, and customized executive matchmaking firm. Her goal was to help busy, successful, single, men and women find a committed loving relationship. These men and women didn’t have a problem finding a date, but also didn’t have the time, resources or wherewithal to find the “One.” Barbie wanted to serve these individuals in the same process driven manner, which she had successfully implemented in the Executive Recruiting industry.
"My greatest pleasure is connecting two extraordinary people, who never would have met. That’s what fuels me and Selective Search® every day.
