Barbara O’Neil is an assistant editor at 5280 and writes for both the print magazine and 5280.com. Barbara was born in Santiago, Chile, and although she misses fresh seafood, she wouldn’t trade living in Colorado for the world’s best salmon. She graduated from the University of Denver with a degree in journalism. Prior to joining the 5280 team, she interned for 303 Magazine. While Barbara has yet to bring in a Pulitzer, she’s proud to have at least received recognition from the Society of Professional Journalists for “Limited Company,” a look at the world of rare diseases in Colorado. When not drowning in assignments, Barbara can be found exploring Denver’s art scene, attempting to visit all 50 states, or simply scrolling through miles of social media posts.
