Suki Avery was born in Brooklyn NY and raised in Long Island by a loving foster family. At age two Johnie and Frankie Rickenbacker found her and her brother at The Brooklyn Home for Children.
Suki came to Los Angeles, California 7 years ago after spending most of her adult life in Brooklyn, New York. When asked what led Suki to “tinsel town” she will tell you that Hollywood has been waiting for her arrival for 30 years. Since Suki was a little girl she practiced in the mirror being on stage and in front of the camera.
While living in New York City, Suki discovered a way to bring her love of acting to the world of marketing and promotions. She started an event staffing and marketing agency where she offered her many clients the chance to experience herself and members of her staff’s theatrical skillset in a busy New York market place.
While promoting for many brands Suki worked as a live event emcee and on stage at a tradeshow she caught the attention of a producer at The USA network that hired Suki to travel around the country as the networks event emcee for “The Show Us Your Character” original programing tour. While working for The USA Network campaign Suki appeared on news broadcasts around the country and the last stop of the tour was in Los Angeles. It was at that time that Suki decided to take a leap of faith. She shut down her successful business and relocated to the west coast. She found opportunities and transitioned from event emcee to television host and landed a job hosting and segment producing for the KNBC lifestyle magazine series “Your LA”. It wasn’t much longer after that Suki began segment hosting, writing and segment producing for another KNBC series called “Whipnotic”. Suki grew her resume as a host and was awarded opportunities to interview, actors, sports figures, musicians and other celebrities on the air. Scripted television was also something that Suki had to take a shot at and going forward she gained a chance to reoccur in a small role on ABC’s soap opera “All My Children”. Suki later guest starred on the Blair Underwood series “The Event” and appeared on “Trauma”, “The Cape”, and many other television series and pilot episodes. She even appeared as herself on the reality series “LA INK” and on all 8 episodes of the Fox series “Take Me Out”.
In January of 2013 Suki was given the difficult news that she had advanced stage breast cancer. This diagnosis came at a time in her life where in her career things were starting to pick up. This bump in the road did not stop Suki from pursuing work. She even shot an ad with no hair left on her head, a side effect from her chemotherapy treatments. Suki endured tests, treatments and surgeries and together with her manager at Dream Entertainment Management found ways to incorporate her cancer trials, tribulations and survivor status while still auditioning for roles in film and television.
Suki is now involved in promoting cancer awareness and early detection. She is currently filming a docu-series supporting the many people affected by cancer.
Be on the look out for Suki Avery as she has several projects in the works and is on a path to surpassing her goals.
