Meet Referential's Barbara Leavy. Here she is with family celebrating mom's 95th birthday. Happy birthday to mom! Barbara has a wide variety of skills and talents that she’s amassed throughout her career and determined that her strengths are best utilized as a Senior Advocacy Consultant at Referential. Her experience in a range of business functions, as well as collaborating across various departments, makes her a valuable advisor; offering unique perspectives to aid others.
She enjoys being a matchmaker for her clients: Connecting their customers with each other and ensuring they receive invitations to the activities they’ve flagged as of interest. Her ability to multitask enables her to juggle all her responsibilities, which particularly comes in handy since no two days at Referential are ever alike!
Working at Referential is one of her favorite professional highlights: She loves the teamwork and comradery, being able to share knowledge and getting to know and help each other grow. Barbara commented on how the group’s dynamic really shines during team activities such as scavenger hunts in San Jose, escape rooms, and casual nights out. Being in such a supportive setting, she feels she continues to grow as a consultant and as a person.
Golfing, cooking, and puzzles are some of her many hobbies. She hopes she can add traveling to that list soon as she looks forward to seeing more of the world. Barbara wants her current job to be her last career; she’s extremely passionate about her role at Referential and doesn’t imagine doing anything else in the future.
