Barrett attended HMI as a student in Semester 26 and has returned many times over the years as a Summer Term intern, Semester science apprentice, assistant Gear Room manager, and Summer Term Science Faculty. She is originally from Louisville, KY but fell in love with the mountains during her time as a student at HMI. Barrett graduated from Colorado College in 2012 with a degree in Environmental Science and a certification as a Colorado Environmental Educator. After college, Barrett worked as a guide in Svalbard, Norway leading hiking, backpacking, and snowmobile trips and still travels there for work and play as often as she can. When she’s not busy connecting with HMI Alumni, you can find Barrett skiing, running, and looking at plants!
