Mo Barrett
Energizer - UNIFORMED INDIVIDUALITY
Storyteller and Podcaster, U.S. Air Force, Col (ret)

Mo Barrett launched her distinguished career as a successful failure when she didn’t get into the Air Force Academy on her first try. She even persevered after becoming the first member of her pilot training class to receive a grade of “Unsatisfactory.” As an Air Force pilot, she flew the Alenia C-27A throughout Central and South America, then flew the Lockheed C-5 around the globe. After 9/11, Mo deployed with a small team to bare bases in Uzbekistan and Afghanistan, converting them from austere fields to airlift hubs. Mo has dealt with the shame, stigma, struggle and success of being a life-long non-conformist and lesbian in the military’s structured environment. She retired as a Colonel after a 25-year Air Force career leveraging hard work and an ability to view the world through lenses of humor, optimism and perspective. She has survived and thrived as a multi-minority and now connects with audiences of all ages and walks of life as a DC tour guide, podcast co-host and storyteller. Mo entertains audiences with a unique presentation style and contagious energy as she charts a course for people who want to laugh, learn and think!
