Avery grew up in Southwest Virginia where she found her interest in the outdoors at a young age exploring the Appalachian mountains out her backdoor. After graduating high school Avery packed up her things and moved to Quito Ecuador to receive her undergraduate degree in International Relations and Environmental Management. The Ecuadorian Andes is where Avery found her love for mountaineering, climbing and photography. Avery has spent the last five years climbing Ecuador’s highest peaks and exploring the farthest corners of the country. Her love for sharing time in the mountains with others has led her to pursue a career in guiding.
