She was for 12 years co-director of Caravan Theater, Cambridge MA, performing original and classical works; for 15 years was a faculty member of The Boston Conservatory and chair of the Theater Division for several of those years. Bobbi used drama therapy structures and personal stories to develop new scripts and invented structures using the actors' child characters as a way into finding their spontaneous Self and connection to freeing body, voice and emotions as part of their acting training. Drama Therapy became part of her repertoire in working in community settings with children and teachers in schools, unions, parent education groups, and organizations. She taught Emotional Intelligence to county employees in San Mateo, CA.
Bobbi gained certification as an RDT through the Transpersonal Drama Therapy Certificate Program under the guidance and mentoring of Saphira Linden and Penny Lewis.
