My name is Avery Okony. I am a disability advocate with SAIL for all 15 counties of the Upper Peninsula. I graduated Northern Michigan University, spring 2019, with my Bachelor of Science. I have been in the social work field for the past three years, although it was not my original focus of study, it has been emotionally rewarding to work so closely with the communities of the U.P.
My ultimate goal is to assist clients with their own personal goals; to educate and inspire others to live their best lives and to live independently within their means.
