Lavallee obtained a fine arts degree from Wesleyan University and taught art at Mt. Edgecombe boarding school in Sitka, Alaska for twelve years. She resides in Anchorage, Alaska.

Barbara Lavallee grew up in Iowa and Wisconsin, the daughter of an art teacher and a Protestant minister, and graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University with a degree in art education in 1964. She worked in social services in Germany and Maine, taught art to Native American children in Arizona and Alaska, and owned and operated a restaurant with her husband, Tom, in Sitka, Alaska.
