Historic preservation consultant Kerri S. Barile ’94 has been recognized as a 2020 Enterprising Woman of the Year, an honor for female entrepreneurs who also support their communities.
Enterprising Women magazine was to have celebrated Barile and the other winners at a March ceremony in Clearwater Beach, Florida; the event was postponed to a later date.
Barile co-founded Dovetail Cultural Resource Group in 2005. The firm now employs nearly 50 preservation professionals in offices in Fredericksburg and Wilmington, Delaware. Many of Dovetail’s employees are UMW graduates. In 2019, Barile’s firm generously established an endowed scholarship in historic preservation at UMW. It also gives 10 percent of its annual profits to charitable organizations.
