Avalon Guarino has dedicated her personal and professional life to the pursuit of human equity. This effort has led her to join the team at the Mindful Life Program in order to facilitate access to mental wellness throughout her community. 

After receiving her undergraduate degree, Avalon joined the Peace Corps and served in Nicaragua.  The experience, while incredibly meaningful and powerful, began a journey to understand her own mental health. This experience only intensified the desire to align her professional career with her values of justice and equity.  As such, since receiving her MA in Human Rights, Avalon has worked at multiple Colorado non-profits seeking to improve the human condition.

Avalon is excited to continue this pursuit by joining the Mindful Life Program team.  When not in the Carbondale office, she can most often be found enjoying the beautiful Colorado wilderness with her two rescue dogs, Cayenne and Smokey.
