Megan Devries

Lead Mentor / Horse Manager

Megan’s past work experiences have definitely been a blessing from God for us here at River’s Edge. Megan spent some time working with behaviourally challenged youth by supporting them in their needs. She also worked with mothers who were learning to care for their children. The skills Megan learned from these jobs are easily applied here at River’s Edge. Still, Megan has more to offer! From a young age, she has been involved with horses by working on a breeding farm as well as on a youth ranch in Alberta. It’s no surprise, then, that Megan is able to equip the staff and volunteers at River’s Edge with the proper training needed to work with the horses. She began her career at River’s Edge in August 2020. Megan’s compassionate heart and love for those who come to the farm has been a blessing in creating a positive environment.

Avery Linde

Lead Mentor / Media Productions

Avery’s kind heart has been moulded by God through her life and work experiences. When she was 12 years old, her father passed away after a few years of illness. This made Avery understand children who are struggling or challenged. Avery’s understanding grew into a passion for helping those with special needs and determining the best course of action for them. So she completed the Educational Assistant Special Needs Support program at Niagara College and has applied the skills learned there for the past 6 years. Avery worked alongside adults with developmental disabilities and, more recently, she assisted children with learning disabilities in a Christian elementary school. In March of 2020, Avery joined the River’s Edge team. Her fun-filled spirit and kind heart are definitely an asset! She puts a smile on, not only the children’s faces, but also the staff around her.
