Associate Dean Barbie and the Community College

Our interview with Barbie Willett was tremendous. I love meeting all of these phenomenal people since I have been going back to Salt Lake Community College. I am honored to be able to attend the only real comprehensive community college, other than Snow College, that provides the type of education they do.

A little bit about Barbie…

Barbie began in her position as Associate Dean for Management and Marketing at Salt Lake Community College’s School of Business in July 2013.  She is a tenured Professor of Marketing at Salt Lake Community College, where she has been employed since Fall 2000.  She was selected as the Post-Secondary Teacher of the Year for 2002-2003 by the Utah Marketing Educators Group.  In 2010 she was named at both the state and international level, the Outstanding Collegiate DECA Advisor. At SLCC, she served as the Marketing Department Coordinator for seven years.  She was also recognized as the 2009 ACBSP Region 7 Teaching Excellence recipient.

Some more fun facts…

Barbie was born and raised in Mississippi, where she grew up working in her family’s neighborhood grocery store.  She and her family moved to Utah in 2000.  She has been married to Evan, a System’s Engineer with Salesforce, for 32 years.  They have two children, Vicky 24 and Ryan 22. 

She enjoys southern cooking, vacations on the beach, laughing and spending time with friends and family.

She is excited to continue working with faculty, staff, and students in her capacity as Associate Dean.

Thank you, Barbie, for taking the time to speak with us today. It means so much. You are a joy getting to know and I am so glad to be attending Salt Lake Community College.
