Barbara Payroll Specialist
Barbara Ogden was born and grew up in the small town of Senatobia, Mississippi. After graduating high school, Barbara enlisted in the United States Air Force where she served the next twenty years. Barbara retired from active duty in 1994, and remained in Anchorage until 2012.
After retirement, Barbara became employed in her husband’s commercial cleaning company where she became office manager, payroll specialist and did payroll taxes for approximately forty employees and five subcontractors for 15 years. In an effort to strike out on her own, Barbara started her own small business in 1997. She realized that a need existed in Anchorage for an ultrasonic blind cleaning and repair service; hence, Blind Date Ultrasonics was born. Initially the company started off small and was supported by her husband’s business, but eventually, Blind Date soared to become a successful company, which is still in business today.
After fifteen years of Blind Date, and thirty years of living in Alaska, Barbara and family opted for a warmer climate. In September of 2012, Barb and husband bid farewell to Anchorage, and six days later drove into Arizona, where they refuse to leave.
Shortly after arrival, Barbara was employed as a call center operator for Sprint’s customer service department, a position which eventually outsourced. She is currently employed with Unified Services, Inc.
