Amy Avery and her husband Howie relocated from Knoxville, TN to Charlottesville along with their daughters Emma-Caroline (11) and Sophie (8) in August of 2015. Amy graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BA in Spanish and a Masters in Elementary Education. She was a bilingual teacher for 15 years teaching in Arizona, Oregon and Texas before moving back to Knoxville where she continued to work as a teacher. Amy began her career in the Episcopal Church after Sophie was born and served as the Director of Children’s Ministries at a Knoxville area Episcopal church for five years prior to moving to Charlottesville. Amy and her family are enjoying living in Charlottesville and feel very blessed to be at Christ Church.
