Barbara “Barbie” Fields Sheppard – Bartender
“I was born in Johnson City Tennessee and lived there until I was 16. I moved to Tampa. FL for a couple of years. My love of the Mountains drew me back home. I reconnected with my friends and spent my free time riding dirt bikes. I pursued a career in Home Health Care and worked for years in that field and loved it. The job finally took a toll on my life and I decided to change careers. I took Fire Training and got a job with Eastman Chemical Company as a Fire Watchman. It was then that I lost my Father and Grandmother and it hurt so bad that I thought a change in my life would help. I moved to the Beach to clear my head and got together with my husband Phillip. We share the same passion of riding motorcycles and living at the beach worshipping the Sun. He builds old Triumph Choppers in his shop as a hobby. Soon after moving to the beach, I started working at the famous Suck Bang Blow. I have a great life, great friends and a wonderful husband. Life is GOOD!!!”
