Avery is currently a junior at Wake Forest University in North Carolina but she considers her home to be the Bay Area, where she was raised. She’s double-majoring in Communication and Psychology with a concentration in Media Studies, but somehow still finds time to play tennis and practice photography. Growing up going on Backroads trips nearly every year has definitely made traveling to new places a passion of hers. This jet-setter’s favorite trip is the Loire Valley Bike Tour because of the beautiful landscapes and mouthwatering French food. This summer Avery’s interning at Backroads’ Berkeley office and will soon be heading off to India for a class on globalization and sustainability in Indian culture.
