Coach Barrie has been involved in triathlons for 20 years.  She is a USA Level II Triathlon Coach and has been coaching men and women of all levels for all distances.  

She has completed three Ironman distance triathlons and hopes to compete in an Ironman each decade of her life! Her specialty is swimming, where she competed in college, and was a New England Championship swimmer. On a personal note, Barrieā€™s passion for the Tri for the Cure hits home as she lost her mother to breast cancer in 2011. She is a mother to two young boys who aspire to be athletes as well and raise breast cancer awareness in honor of their grandma!
