Barbara Valentine learned early on the value of hard work, teamwork, and perseverance. She left her home in suburban Oakland County while still in her teens, first moving to the Greater Atlanta, Georgia area and then owning a home in Flint, before settling in Mayville 22 years ago. Barbara pursued a BA, MBA, and her Doctoral work in Local Government Management and Law with a focus on Organizational Leadership, while working full-time and raising a family with Randy Valentine, a Desert Storm Veteran and lifelong Tuscola County resident.

Barbara’s academic prowess and leadership abilities provided her a sound footing in a business career that has brought her experience in Industrial Management, Business, Human Resources, Financial Management, and Operational Management in distressed properties. She spent the last two decades holding leadership positions in companies in the Thumb and Great Lakes Bay Region, in addition to volunteering for a variety of charitable causes. Barbara is currently serving her first term as Village President.
