Avery Staples

Development Specialist

Avery originally came to Austin to attend The University of Texas and explore a place a little weirder than her hometown, Plano, TX. During her senior year, Avery joined the Side by Side Kids team as our Development Intern. She immediately fell in love with SBSK and the communities she had the opportunity to work with. When she graduated from UT in May 2017, Avery came on board full-time as the Development Specialist. She is passionate about empowering the kids we serve and showing them the love of Christ.

Outside of the office, Avery volunteers as a Young Life leader at a high school in Austin and on UT’s campus. She also enjoys exploring the many unique stores and coffee shops Austin has to offer, playing beach volleyball, traveling, reading, and going to concerts.
