Darla Barar is a native Austinite. She attended Texas Lutheran University for two years before making her way back to Austin and the University of Texas, where she received her bachelor’s degree in English.
Darla taught middle school English for two years in Rockport, TX, a small town outside of Corpus Christi, before moving back to Austin. She just can’t stay away! Darla left teaching to pursue a career as a writer. She started as a copywriter for an online retailer in 2013, then came to Practice Cafe in 2014, bringing her writing talent and organizational skills to our content creation team. Darla has the unique perspective of also having worked as a PC project manager both in the past and presently, as well, with that cross-department experience making her exceptionally equipped to meet our clients’ marketing content needs and goals!
Darla met her husband Peter in 2011, and they got married in 2013. They’ve purchased their first house, and Darla is enjoying decorating it and making it a home for their family. Darla and Peter have three fur children: a cat named Chicago, a maltipoo named Daphne Jane, and Fitzy, the adorable puppy pictured here. Darla and Peter have been thoroughly enjoying their baby daughter, a precious girl named Olivia Adele born in 2016. Now they’re looking forward to welcoming another baby in the spring of 2018, this time a boy to be named Noah Benjamin. Darla and Peter like cooking, wine tasting, going to shows (traveling Broadway shows, local productions, symphony concerts, you name it), and seeing movies at Alamo Drafthouse. Darla also reads pretty much anything she can get her hands on.← Back to the Team Page
