Ms Houston Vintage 2017
Ava C. Howard

Ava C. Howard was born and raised in Spring, Texas.  She's a hairdresser and went on to school to obtain her degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant.  Ava works with geriatric patients in both hospitals and home environments and assists in instruction of functional exercise to help patients regain their functional independence thus enabling them to enjoy their lives as they were prior to the medical problems deteriorated muscle strength. It’s very rewarding especially as Ava get to work with patients from my favorite era.. the 1940s and also hear about their parents from earlier eras. 

Ava enjoys being outdoors in nature, hiking, swimming and bicycling.  She's an accomplished cook and likes to try different recipes from around the world.  She's also a wine adventurer and enjoys travelling to different Texas wineries in search of delicious wines to enjoy with old movies. 



Ms Houston Vintage 2017 loves sewing from vintage patterns.  She also enjoys traveling to small towns and antiquing for home goods to make her home look like it is a dream home from the 1940s. 

She's a Friday night regular at the original 1980s club, Number’s in Houston Montrose area where you can be who you want to be, without judgment and dance the night away. It’s the best, most freeing feeling after a long work week.


Ava is musically inclined and can play the violin, though says she's a bit rusty these days.

Ava volunteers at centers and organizations such as Multiple Sclerosis Camp for All that help older people with debilitating medical conditions, to assist them with fun activities such as horse back riding, canoeing, games, and dancing.
