How did you first learn about and begin working with The Avery Center?
I heard Megan speak and then signed up to volunteer! I've been with The Avery Center as an employee since January 2019.
What do you think sets The Avery Center apart from other organizations in this sector?
Research based and data driven.
What's your favorite part/the most fulfilling part of your role?
Being a part of a cultural change.
What do you enjoy doing when you're not at The Avery Center?
Playing with my dachshund Leeloo! Besides this work my main interests are medieval longsword fencing and ballroom dancing.
Who is someone you admire, and why?
Obi-Wan Kenobi! Do fictional characters count? Really, our two co-founders Megan and Angie. They are intelligent, committed, and truly inspiring human beings. And on top of that they're a lot of fun too!
Do you have any skills or talents that most people don’t know about?
There's really nothing more enjoyable than putting on tails and waltzing the night away.
What advice would you give someone who wants to join the Avery team of superstars?
Being nerdy helps! We want to work with people who are working for equality, ending gender based violence and discrimination, and committed to a cultural shift around commercial sexual exploitation.
Your favorite book:
So many books, so little time as the saying goes. If I had to pick just one it would be The Three Musketeers! But I love all things Jane Austen too!
TV show you're hooked on:
Anxiously awaiting the Obi-Wan Kenobi series! However I thoroughly enjoy The Gilmore Girls in the meantime.
I'm just happy to be here!
