Barbara H. Morris worked for 20 years in public relations in healthcare. In 1995 she started Smooth Transitions after settling an estate for a friend, and assisting her mother-in-law moving to a retirement community. Barbara recognized not everyone has family to help. She created a workbook that has sold over 5,000 copies called Moving for Seniors, a step-by-step guide to know when to downsize, where to move, how to keep it simple, and tips for adult children. She was a Founding Member and board member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers formed in 2002 which is an group of 20 companies who do the same type of work. Barbara has trained others to do what she does. There are now 49 Smooth Transitions in the US and one in Canada and one in New Zealand.
