Biff holds his MBA, has thirty years of engineering and program management experience, and has owned a property management company. Barb has spent the last 30 years raising and homeschooling their twelve (yes, twelve!) children. As you can see, it’s a toss-up deciding who is more qualified to run the daily schedule and activities at Rosemont! Biff grew up in Ohio, graduated from the USAF Academy in Colorado, married his college sweetheart Barb, and now enjoys building soap box derbies with his children in his “spare” time. Barb grew up in Hawaii, graduated with Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in rehabilitation counseling and worked as a counselor for the deaf. Barb now enjoys running 10k and half-marathon races. Biff and Barb had nine biological children (eight boys and one girl) before adopting a sibling set (two sisters and one brother) from Ethiopia in 2009.
