How did you first learn about and begin working with The Avery Center?

I met Megan and Angie at the Villanova Conference in 2018. I attended one their workshops and felt really inspired. I already wanted to do research and it was really exciting to see that was already being done from a survivor-centered perspective. A few months later, Megan posted that she was hiring for someone to take the lead on marketing and I jumped at the opportunity to work with the organization.
