Avery has loved to be in and near water since they were a toddler, and fell in love with rafting in the Grand Canyon in 2015. They went on a Canyons trip in 2021 and the Salmon River found a special place in their heart. This is their first year working with Canyons and they are so excited! A recent graduate from Mount Holyoke College, Avery is pursuing work in makerspace and outdoor education. They love running, reading, writing, playing rugby, swimming, and board games.
