|Dr. Barr has taught a very
specialized course, one based on her own
professional experience. The course was Virtual
Assistant Coaching Seminar. This course was offered
in an online mode, and Dr. Barr did a wonderful job
not just developing the course from the ground up,
but also in teaching it.
Dr. Barr took on the challenge of developing the
course based on her experience, and submitted all
the required materials on time and within the
guidelines set up for course development. I have
been impressed with her professionalism and her
energy when she is pursuing her teaching.
Based on my working with her, I recommend her for
online teaching. Although my contact with her was
limited in the course development and conduction her
online class, I am confident that she would put her
heart and soul in any endeavor she pursues.

|During her work in the course
room, I immediately realized that she was an
energetic, conscientious student, extremely
intelligent and committed to academic excellence.
Given this impression, I sought her out to join in
partnership to undertake her dissertation work---I
had assessed her qualities and abilities accurately.
Throughout her dissertation, Randi displayed these
qualities that single out professionals we hope will
enter into the profession; we worked closely and had
weekly and sometimes many more conferences where I
had the opportunity to observe her professional
skill and personal characteristics. On the personal
side, her integrity, willingness to collaborate and
determination to learn were a hallmark of our work.
As a member of our dissertation team, she took the
lead time and again to provide others the benefit of
her experience in our dissertation course room and
was a role model for those around her and other
benefitted mightily from her expertise and support.
Our time together was a pleasure because of her keen
intelligence, strong work ethic, time management
skills, and attention to detail - all researchers
would be well served to possess these characteristic
and skills - she is a credit to the profession. When
she completed her dissertation work she was cheered
on by all of us but her departure was met with mixed
emotions by me and her other learner/researchers.
I recommend Randi with absolute confidence. Her
attention to detail, willingness to work long hours,
and scholarly demeanor will truly enhance any online
university program. She is a self-motivated
conscientious leader who works and communicates
effectively with students, faculty, and staff. Dr.
Randi Barr would be a credit in the highest degree
to any organization to which she seeks to join.

willingness and commitment to the students. It was
very apparent from the beginning that she wanted to
assist students in any way possible. She readily
offered time after class listening and responding
to questions and suggestions. She spent every class
period encouraging student participation.
