Averie completed her undergraduate education at the Minnesota State University – Mankato and received a degree in Athletic Training. Immediately following her college graduation she began her career as the Assistant Athletic Trainer at Edina High School. She LOVED it there working with football, cross country, boys basketball, hockey and track and field. Almost 2 years later, she made the transition to Twin Cities Orthopedics as a physician extender for Dr. Christopher Larson, who specialized in hip arthroscopy. Although it was difficult for her to leave the high school and all of her “kids” the transition was a great move. Her husband, Jeff, and she are originally from St. James and wanted to get back down there to be closer to our families. She currently lives here in Mankato along with her husband, Jeff, their son, Knoxyn and dog Cali.
