 Aven has been in the Health Food Industry for 17 years. I owned my own small Health Food Store in Spanish Fork, UT for 8 years where I met the most amazing customers, friends and reps. One of them being Al, the owner of Breakout Sales! I love the never ending excitement of learning about and trying new products in this industry! 

I was born in Tucson AZ, then shortly after moved to Page, AZ where my father helped in the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam. I lived in Page until I went away to college in UT (thus earning the title of Dam Child).  Utah became my home for the next 35 years. Raising my 3 children in Southern UT then moving to Central UT. It’s great fun being able to represent our brands in my 2 favorite states!
