A city dweller at heart, Barrie grew up outside of Boston and then studied cities as a social and cultural analysis major at New York University. Upon graduating from NYU with more accolades and “flair” than a Friday’s waitress, Barrie took on her next challenge: joining The Boston Consulting Group. At BCG, Barrie helped a variety of Fortune 500 companies address their biggest challenges and received a crash course in business strategy and travel points accumulation. Inspired by her family of entrepreneurs from Pittsburgh and Providence, Barrie joined VFA in 2014. She now leads VFA’s in-city operations and strategy based from the New York office. In addition to getting to know the amazing communities in VFA cities, Barrie enjoys chocolate chip cookies, cult comedies (hope everyone caught the Office Space reference!), and traveling the world.
