Barre grew up in Charleston, South Carolina with an early passion for horses and art. She began riding and competing in the hunter division at the age of six. Her passion for design grew in high school and led her to pursue a degree in Visual Communications with a minor in Graphic Design. In 2015 she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of South Carolina, where she competed as a member of the IHSA Equestrian Team, designed for two school publications (Garnet & Black Magazine and InterCom Magazine) and gained real-world experience working with the Carolina Agency. She joined PMG as an intern for the 2016 winter circuit where she fell in love with the experience and eagerly joined as a full time staff member in 2017.
