About Barbara

I’m Barbara Dröher Kline. I grew up in Minnesota, where my father had his own construction company and my mother sold real estate. I learned early on the value of work and the reward of building something from the ground up.

I am a graduate of Luther College, and I am passionate about public service. I have spent my life helping others, in direct service and in public policy; whether it’s seniors, persons with mental or physical disabilities, or families in crises. Currently, I help individuals and families plan for college, retirement, or their senior years through my work with Thrivent Financial.

I ran for the Minnesota House District 20A seat in 2018.

I am chair of the Le Sueur County Broadband Coalition which is a grassroots group, endorse by the Board of Commissioners, working to get broadband internet connections to every address in the county. We look to apply for state funding in 2018.

My husband and I live near Union Hill with our three horses and four dogs in an old farmhouse that we renovated. When I can bring my love for animals and my passion for public service together, I do. Whether it’s using horses with veterans who have PTSD, or bringing my poodles to the memory care unit at the Lutheran Home in Belle Plaine, I have found healing power in animals.
