About Barbara Bollier.
A Neighbor We Know.
Barbara Bollier grew up in Fairway and Mission Hills where she attended Shawnee Mission schools. She graduated from KU and went on to earn a medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. At KU Med, she met and married fellow classmate Rene Bollier. After graduation, the Bolliers moved to Houston to complete their residencies, Barbara in anesthesiology and Rene in family medicine.
In 1987, they returned to Johnson County where Barbara joined her father in his anesthesia practice at Surgicenter of Kansas City and Rene began his family practice. The Bolliers have two children, Anne-Marie and Bobby, both of whom graduated from Shawnee Mission schools.
Barbara retired from practicing in 1999. Barbara volunteered for several years with the Center for Practical Bioethics and was honored with their Vision to Action Award in 2010. She has taught in the Bioethics Masters program at Kansas City University of Medicine.
A Leader We Can Trust.
Barbara has been active in our community on the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation Board where she served as chair of the grants committee. Barbara has also been a volunteer working with second graders and tutoring at Ruston Elementary School in Roeland Park, as a volunteer at Pembroke Hill School, as a respite caregiver, and as an elder/trustee at Village Presbyterian Church. For several years, Barbara has taught sex education classes through the church and she has served as a panel speaker with The Wrong of Passage, part of the Johnson County STOP Underage Drinking Coalition.
