Barrett was a standout athlete at Auburn Riverside. She received a basketball scholarship to Arizona State University and was limited to playing one season with the Sun Devils because of continuing injuries and multiple foot surgeries.

After hanging up her basketball jersey, she transferred to Brigham Young University, where she graduated with a degree in business management with an emphasis in finance.
