About Autumn

Originally from Montana and currently residing in Sheridan, Barrett began practicing in the Gillette community in the Spring of 2023. She brings her neurology expertise to the area, making regular visits roughly twice each month. Barrett's commitment to healthcare stems from her early years, having cared for her grandfather in hospice while pursuing her education. This personal experience ignited her desire to contribute meaningfully to the healthcare sector.

Barrett attended the Rocky Mountain College Physician Assistant Program, where she completed her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies.

Reflecting on her decision to become a PA, Barrett shared, "I knew I wanted to have a family someday, that I wanted to be in healthcare, and I knew I wanted flexibility. Eventually, I decided on PA school and haven't looked back – it's been a great choice."

With a decade of experience in internal medicine and family practice, she demonstrated her versatility and dedication to diverse medical disciplines. Barrett's path took a transformative turn when Neurologist Dr. Thomas Mayer, with whom she shared many of the same patients, recognized her potential. Impressed by their shared professional relationship and mutual patients, Dr. Mayer offered her an opportunity to join him in neurology. Embracing the challenge, Barrett decided to step out of her comfort zone and seize the opportunity.

"I had a good professional relationship with Dr. Mayer, and we shared a lot of mutual patients. He offered me the opportunity to work with him, and I decided to challenge myself and take it," remarked Barrett on her transition to neurology.

Since then, Barrett has thrived in neurology, tackling complex and chronic cases with a passion for continuous learning. Her partnership with Dr. Mayer has been professionally rewarding and allowed her to forge meaningful connections with patients and their families.

"There's a lot of chronic disease in neurology, and so you get a lot of time with patients. You make powerful bonds with the families you work with. It's all about relationships and trust," she emphasized.

Beyond her medical pursuits, Barrett enjoys outdoor activities, particularly hiking and lakeside relaxation. As a dedicated mother of two active children involved in sports, she supports and cheers for them on the sidelines.
