Avery Barry is an administrative assistant at DeLong & Brower. She grew up in Holland, Michigan, where she attended Holland Christian High School. Avery then spent a few years in Indiana, where she graduated from Taylor University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.
Her early career experiences involved working with children with special needs, including autism. This confirmed Avery’s direction in life – “I love working with and helping people.”
Avery is engaged to her lifelong best friend, Jonas, and they have two children, Violet (4) and Jackson (6 months), in addition to Chai, their 2-year-old rescued cat. Avery’s favorite “food” indulgences are tiramisu, watermelon sour patch kids, and dark chocolate with almonds. With her precious free time, Avery’s “creative” indulgences are drawing and painting nature scenes.
Avery’s skills are about as diverse as her favorite foods. She provides ideas and creates solutions for DeLong & Brower to work better together – and more efficiently.
Around the office, it’s clear that Avery loves her work life, as well as her home life. Whether it’s staff, family, or clients, you’ll get the same response from Avery - her sparkling eyes and smile make everyone feel welcome.
Around the house, Avery simply enjoys being with her family, and when the mood strikes her – getting out her ukulele and strumming some tunes with her family dancing and singing alongside.
When getting things into tune around the office, you can find Avery at the front desk, helping everyone who comes through our doors feel at home.
