Barbara Steingas has been immersed in German language and culture all her life via her German born mother and visiting her relatives in Germany dozens of times. Germany is her second home and very dear to her heart. In high school, the Literary Society Foundation, Inc. of New York City awarded her a Silver Medal for outstanding achievement in the study of German.

She recently wrote an article about the kindness of her neighbors entitled “Help Thy Neighbor Is Still Alive In Solitude Village.” It was published in the Winter/Spring 2009 edition of The Bridge, her town’s quarterly newsletter, as well as a letter to the editor in the Hunterdon Democrat, a local newspaper. The property manager of her neighborhood community enjoyed the latter rendition of the article so much that she had it reprinted in the Spring 2009 edition of Solitude Village’s Community Newsletter.

Barbara has been a Physical Therapist for almost 28 years and recently completed her 25th year at Overlook Hospital in Summit, New Jersey. She received her Bachelor of Science degree for Physical Therapy from University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 1985 where she received a scholarship for tuition and fees from their Honors Program and graduated summa cum laude. She earned a Master’s Degree for Motor Learning from Columbia Teacher’s College in 1988. Two other accolades include being represented in the 1980-81 edition of Who’s Who Among American High School Students as a result of graduating in the top ten percentile of her class, and election to the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society’s University of Maryland Chapter in 1984.
