Aj Jones has been working in the adolescence mental health field for the past 4 years. She began my journey as a wilderness guide at Trails Carolina where she found a passion for the work. As a mentor here at AAG, her natural love for fun enabled me to build strong relationships with students. As a manager, she hopes the same enthusiasm inspires current mentors to connect with the girls in a similar way. She believes in the power of play (with the help of firm boundaries) to changes the lives of our students.
In her personal life, she is an avid adventure seeker. She loves mountain biking, rafting, sky diving and hiking. She grows carnivorous plants as well as vegetables, and always have a project I’m working on involving power tools. She practices random acts of kindness and thoughtless acts of silliness. She has a dog that resembles a polar bear cub and brings shoes as gifts to guests in her home.
