Autumn Ackerson

Autumn is a Chinese adoptee and works as a program manager for the China and Bulgaria Program at Ties. She was raised in Kalamazoo, Michigan, but currently calls Denver, CO home with her boyfriend and cat, Otto (the best cat in the world). As an adoptee herself, she understands the significance of Ties trips. Her journey with Ties began back in 2014 when she went on her first Ties trip. After finishing college, she started working for Ties as an adjunct travel staff and has staffed Ties trips to both China and Guatemala before taking on more responsibilities as a program manager.
