Nothing is known about Ava's life before the apocalypse, except she had a mother, husband, and was pregnant.
Ava is among the dozens of refugees to arrive at the Rosarito Beach Hotel begging to be let in. After her mother pleads for her daughter to be let in, due to her pregnancy, Strand arrives and announces to everyone that they will be taken care of. The next morning, Ava is going into labor and while Strand initially refuses, he helps deliver Ava's baby, in which she names Victor, after Strand.
After the Hotel gate was breached, and the Rosarito Beach Hotel was overrun, it is unknown if Ava was able to escape, make it to a higher floor, or was killed.
- Ava is the second pregnant survivor encountered in Fear The Walking Dead, the first being Vida.
