Chloe Barber-Smith

Chloe was born and raised in Philadelphia, but headed south for college. New Orleans became her home for a spirited and unforgettable six years. While in school, she traveled to South Africa, where she experienced and studied multiculturalism, both inside and outside of the classroom. She also spent her summers leading teen adventure and leadership programs at a camp in Oregon. After graduation, she stayed in New Orleans and worked in outdoor education, taking students canoeing, camping, and generally spending every day having fun. Her travels have brought her all over the world, including Costa Rica, Ghana, Brazil, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Azerbaijan, Iceland and parts of Europe. She now lives in Colorado, working in the Global Works home office. Chloe fills the rest of her time by strolling her neighborhood with a cup of coffee, dancing whenever possible, and exploring her beautiful surroundings
