Avalon's Chief Strategy Officer, Jenny Phillips, recently received a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia's Department of Religious Studies, completing that department's doctoral program in Theology, Ethics and Culture. Her doctoral dissertation explores the ethics of contemporary economic life, addressing concerns such as ownership and wealth, purposeful and ethical work, and responsible consumption. 

It was a beautiful evening on the Chesapeake Bay out of Annapolis when Avalon joined the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for a sunset skipjack trip. It was great to experience firsthand the wonders of the Bay and reminded us all how important it is to save this national treasure.
