The daughter of a doctor and nurse, Barbara Bollier grew up in Fairway and Mission Hills where she attended Kansas public schools. She graduated from KU and went on to earn a medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. While at medical school, she met and married fellow classmate, Rene Bollier. In 1987, Barbara joined her father in his anesthesia practice at Surgicenter of Kansas City. After a career as a doctor, Barbara ran for the Kansas House of Representatives in 2010. There, she served as an independent voice for Kansans, earning a reputation as a leader willing to stand up to both political parties to solve the challenges facing our families. In 2016 she ran and won a State Senate seat. There, she continued her fight to reverse the Brownback tax experiment, adequately fund our schools, and make healthcare more affordable for all. She partnered with then-Senator Laura Kelly and other commonsense leaders to build the bipartisan coalition that ultimately ended the failed Brownback tax plan that had devastated Kansas for years. Bollier has been an advocate for expanding Medicaid in Kansas and currently serves on the Governor’s Council on Medicaid Expansion tasked with building a bipartisan plan to expand healthcare for all Kansans. She and her husband have two children, Anne-Marie and Bobby.
