New Business Manager
Barbara Ricciardi was born and raised in the New York City area. At age 16, her family moved from NYC, her favorite city in the world, to rural New York, to a small four corners way up by the Canadian border. That cured Barbara of country living forever. She studied graphic design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and, at the urging of her grandmother, concurrently studied a secretarial curriculum at a local small business college in the evenings for a year.
Before coming to New Horizons Wealth Management LLC, Barbara had 9 years previous experience working in another financial planning firm in Denville. In another life, before marriage and children, Barbara worked at Columbia Graduate Business School as an administrative assistant to a Professor and at Berlex Pharmaceuticals.
Barbara resides in Denville, NJ, with her husband, Sandy. She has three sons, Matthew, Michael, and Christopher. Her oldest son, Matthew, is a Washington, DC IP lawyer. Michael served in the Navy and is now in Aerospace Engineering. Christopher has a Masters of Teaching in Mathematics and works in Parsippany.
Barbara enjoys traveling to Europe (especially Italy and France), wine tasting, learning Italian (she has a long way to go), working on jigsaw puzzles, reading novels, and attending the opera at the Met in NYC.
