Avery graduated from LC in 2018 with a BA in Psychology and minor in Philosophy. After graduation, she bought a moped and got a job at a small science themed gift company in St. Johns- Cognitive Surplus. There, she helped with product research, marketing, product design, website management, copy writing, social media, and went to various trade shows. After working at Cognitive Surplus for 9 months, Avery began working at her current job as a Study Coordinator at the Center to Improve Veteran Involvement in Care (CIVIC), at the Portland Veterans Hospital. In this role, she works with three researchers studying suicide prevention, home-based primary care, and care coordination for Veterans. Currently, she spends most of her time at work interviewing Veterans in the inpatient psychiatric unit about their experiences with community engagement. She hopes to continue learning as much as she can about research over the next year before applying to a PhD program in clinical psychology. When she’s not working, you can find Avery playing ultimate frisbee at Delta park, snowboarding at Mt. Hood, or reading a mediocre sci fi novel.
