Barrett’s natural born curiosity drives her to collect unique stories and experiences from each destination she visits.
While attending Wagner College, Barrett studied abroad in Melbourne, Australia; she used that time to travel around the continent extensively before moving into her first apartment 10,000 miles away from home. Her love for travel and enthusiasm in meeting new people drove her to find a career that fulfilled her passions and she truly found her calling when she became a member of the Leisure Team at SmartFlyer HQ in New York City. Today, her role involves helping to plan clients’ travels as well as facilitating partnerships with preferred hotels across the luxury sector.
During four years and counting at SmartFlyer, Barrett has traveled to countless properties expanding her network and continuing to develop her knowledge on the up-and-coming trends in the travel industry. She deeply values the relationships she’s made with her travel partners and believes by fostering these relationships, her clients will receive the true VIP experience they desire. While Australia, London, Amsterdam, and Switzerland stick out as some of Barrett’s most memorable trips from the vast catalog of destinations she has traveled to, she can help her clients reach any corner of the world! For her, it’s all about details.
Whether flying domestic or international, I love to have eye and face masks handy during my flight. The masks keep my skin hydrated and fresh so by the time I land, I’m ready to take on the destination without looking tired!
Barrett is great! She’s very responsive, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I tell everyone about her. I feel like we can’t travel anywhere without her input. I have sent many people her way. She great for work trips and vacations. We are about to plan another vacation soon and I can’t wait for her input. Thanks so much.-A.M.
Barrett is just so great to work with! Just an absolute pleasure and so knowledgeable. She was so attentive and would call me back immediately. I wanted to make a change the day of my trip so I sent her an email at 7am and she replied back to me in 10 minutes that she was working on it. Love her! I can't wait to work with Barrett again in the future.-C.S.
We worked with Barrett to plan our 3 week honeymoon to Australia and Fiji. She was absolutely fantastic! She got to know our travel preferences early in the process and put together an absolutely incredible itinerary – complete with stops to multiple locations, amazing resorts, multiple activities and tours and recommendations for things to do at each location. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the trip and loved all of the resorts and tours that were booked for us by Barrett. She was incredibly organized – putting together a detailed app we could access on our phones with all of reservations and schedules and was prompt to answer the many questions we sent to her throughout the planning process! We already recommended Barrett & SmartFlyer to many of our friends and will continue to do so. We wish we could do it all again!-The Leos
This was our first time working with SmartFlyer. Barrett assisted us during a very difficult time; it’s certainly not easy to travel during a pandemic. Our original plan was to go to Italy. Barrett helped us plan out every detail of what will someday be an amazing trip! Once the pandemic hit, we were no longer comfortable going to Italy, so she helped us to push out the plans a year and secure new dates. She then helped us pivot to still travel somewhere to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and vow renewals. She suggested Hotel Esencia in Tulum, which we had never heard of. She had been before, so she had lots of great tips and could personally recommend the location and the staff. She helped talk me through the anxiety of going to airports and getting on a plane and all of the travel logistics. SmartFlyer had a great app that consolidated all of our travel details. Upon arrival, our room was upgraded and we were given a contact to text to help us with our every need so as to cut down on visits to guest services. Following our trip, Barrett reached out to follow up to find out how our stay was and what could have gone better, which in my opinion, is a true characteristic of a travel agent who really cares and is looking for long term business. I can't imagine planning any trips in the future without Barrett!-B.A.
