Avery is a native Alabamian who has called Atlanta home since 2012. She received her bachelor’s degree from Auburn University in Spanish with International Trade and her MBA with a concentration in Human Resources from Belhaven University. Avery has a passion for event planning and enjoys coordinating weddings, as well as corporate and private events. She has served on Turner Broadcasting’s Corporate Responsibility Council where she has led events in both Atlanta and New York. She also enjoys serving on the events team at her home church, the Midtown Bridge in Atlanta.


Avery and her husband Ryyan “jumped the broom” a year ago, and when she is not planning events, she enjoys spending time with him, gardening, baking, and learning new languages.
