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

I first learned about The Avery Center (then Free Our Girls) in 2016 when I heard Megan Lundstrom give a lecture on Human Trafficking for Health Professionals at North Colorado Medical Center. She inspired me to go through the SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) training and pay more attention to what is happening in our community. I began working with the organization in April 2020.


What do you think sets The Avery Center apart from other organizations in this sector?

The founders. Megan is such a down to earth, positive influence and she instantly makes you feel comfortable and at ease. She puts forth a genuine vibe of care and concern that builds rapport with staff, clients and the community.


What's your favorite part/the most fulfilling part of your role?

Being able to see how the past work of Free Our Girls and the future work of The Avery Center will help to transform lives not only in Colorado, but across the country and around the world.


What do you enjoy doing when you're not at The Avery Center?

Hiking, Yoga--I will start my Yoga Teacher Training in September of this year, and something I hope to be able to offer for The Avery Center in the future!


What advice would you give someone who wants to join the Avery team of superstars?

Do it! No matter the number of hours or the number of dollars you have to give--every little bit helps and there are so many facets in which to get involved.
