Hello from Avery!


My name is Avery and I’m honored to be joining Tindy and Marcus as part of your instructor team!

This will be my fourth course with Dragons. I led my first Dragons course two summers ago in Peru. Prior to that I was a student during my gap year on Dragons’ Andes & Amazon course which travels throughout Bolivia and Peru. I am eagerly awaiting our adventures in China and getting to be a part of your Dragons journey.

I am originally from the East Coast but call Colorado home which is where I’ve landed for the last eight years. I moved to Colorado for school where I studied both Sociology and Education. I also had the opportunity to take my studies to Mongolia for a semester where I focused on Globalization, Education & Geopolitics.

During the academic year I work at a semester school in Leadville, Colorado called the High Mountain Institute. I love spending time with students and being a part of transformative educational experiences.

I am spoiled by the sunshine and the Rocky Mountains and spend as much time as I can exploring; mainly backpacking, biking, and floating down rivers.

A month of adventure, challenge, and empowerment is ahead!

See you all very soon!
