Bari Douglas

Bari is originally a native of Allen, but moved away before she started school and lived most of her life in the tiny town of Glen Rose. She recently moved back to Collin County and resides in Wylie with her 2 year old son, Carter. Bari is a 22 year old, working, single-mother and is passionate about women supporting women, especially other single moms. She works full time from home as a Mortgage Loan Processor for Benchmark Mortgage, and currently attends school full-time online. Bari plans to graduate in December with her Bachelor’s degree in General Business from Tarleton State University. In her freetime, you’ll catch Bari going for a run at the park, hitting up some shopping in West Plano, going for a long stroll through Central Market, or cheering on Kyler Murray (A-Up, Eagles!) and the Arizona Cardinals if it’s football season.
