Barb Cookas

Human Resource Director


Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates


Barb has been involved in healthcare in since 1966. In 1980, Barb joined ObGyn Specialists, first as a Medical Assistant, then as Lab Supervisor, and eventually Clinical Services Manager. After returning to school to pursue a career in Human Resources, she has worked as the Human Resource Director for all four divisions of Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates.


Barb has been fortunate to work with amazing providers and staff over the years. Her approach to her role in HR is to support the interests and concerns of both employee and employer, supporting growth and development for both.


Barb and her husband live in Burnsville with their two cats, Velma & Freddy. They share a blended, growing family of four sons, daughters-in law, and three (almost) adorable grandchildren.


Outside of work, Barb enjoys gardening, reading, cooking, entertaining, and relaxing in the sun.
