Hugo Barrera was born and raised in the small town of Torrington, Wyoming. Shortly after graduating High School he joined the US Navy. Deploying to several places, he has been based in Virginia Beach since 2009. As an active duty Senior Chief Petty Officer he has worked with a diverse group of men and woman accomplishing one main task….teamwork! Being the recipient of several “Of the Year” awards in addition to being ranked #1 out of the largest aviation training command on the East Coast, he knows what it takes to be a winner and get the job done! One thing he can tell you, being highly decorated is a great accomplishment, but being a husband and father is the best award ever! Having to relocate his family several times, Hampton Roads is his new “home away from home”. He has earned many Honors and Awards during his career, but he is most proud of his accomplishments as a husband and father. He and his beautiful wife Hope have 3 wonderful children and an amazing Granddaughter. When not working, he enjoys home renovations and helping others.
