Mill Mountain Theatre brought Ginger Poole Avis to Roanoke in 2006, and eight years later Avis, Producing Artistic Director for the Theatre, has been married here, started a family here, and definitely considers Roanoke home. In addition to teaching acting at Hollins University, Avis is a member of many local organizations, including the Roanoke Valley Garden Club, and serves on the Boards of the Virginia Theatre Association and Junior League of Roanoke Valley. Ginger considers the Junior League of Roanoke Valley to be a connector for women, and through the League has met lifelong friends that share her passions and love for this community.
