Barrett Doss Age, Early Life, Family, and Education Background
Barrett was born under the Pisces Zodiac sign on 20 March 1989, in Minneapolis, Minnesota USA, making her 30 years old in 2019. Born to a Caucasian mother and an African-American father, she is an American by nationality and belongs to mixed ethnicity. Her mother, Kelly Skalicky is the president of Stearns Bank while her dad, Karl Doss, is a litigation attorney.
Barrett’s parents divorced when she was still young, and when she was six years old her mother ‘came out’ and later tied the knot with her longtime lover, Veronica; both of them shared parenting responsibilities. On the other hand, her dad married Pam when Barrett was just seven years old and he relocated to Virginia with his new family. She now has three half-siblings from her father’s second marriage, a brother, Donovan and two sisters, Faith and Natalie. So Barrett was raised in non-traditional and blended family background, and moved a lot as a child.
At first, her family lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they stayed for two years before moving to Chicago, which is where Barrett spent most of her childhood, until the family moved to New York City where she attended her last two years of high school education at the Professional Children’s School. Barrett was more than interested in performing; she was also an athlete, loved playing basketball, and swimming. She was just like her mother who was a professional basketball player for the Minnesota Stars, also played golf and competed in the US Open thrice. As a kid, Barrett was introduced to musical theater, and she spent four years with the famous Chicago Children’s choir as a member.
While in middle school, she auditioned for a stage musical at the University of Chicago Lab School – it was at this time that she fell in love with acting, and with the idea of embodying someone else’s spirit on stage. She took part in musical and theater-focused programs around the city, and later joined Janet Louer, who is a private acting coach based in Chicago. Janet believed in Barrett’s abilities and talent, encouraged her and pushed her out of her comfort zone, while continuously inspiring her. According to Barrett, she was a tough and demanding teacher.
From all the encouragement she got from Janet, Barrett’s mother moved her to New York from Chicago after her sophomore year, to enable Barrett to study and build her acting skills. Barrett studied musical theater in New York University for one year, then moved into the Gallatin program in the same school, where she could design her own major like the other students in the program. Barrett graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
