—Ava's description on her bio image.

Ava is a girl who is very optimistic, in addition to being creative, kind and friendly and cares a lot about people, and because of that, she always sets up anything at school, be it a storage room or a tent, to make money for something (among these events one to set up a bike station, another to help Tom promote the Franklin Cube, and to raise money for arts room materials). During investigations, Ava can sometimes get distracted by the conversation easily, but even so, she confronts everyone when people are caught doing a crime, encouraging the good in people and making them apologise.

One of her most notable features is her humour, where Ava loves to use jokes on occasion, although she sometimes exaggerates, but even so, her jokes don't offend people, however, they make them think it's weird. Ava is also very concerned about her friends when they get nervous, and always goes out of her way to comfort them, including Ezra, Kyle and Maudie. She was considered by all to be a good leader, and many think she could be something bigger in the future, someone important, which led her to be chosen by the committee of Future Leaders in her community, along with students from other local schools.

Ava, however, also proves to be very temperamental on many occasions, especially when Kyle tries to get her a cupcake for him (or something else she sells at the stall) for free, and he promises that he will pay for it later, however, he always ends up forgetting, which led her to accuse him of stealing her owl tin, just for Ezra to prove Kyle's innocence. During the grade 5 play, Ava, seeing all the mistakes that were happening in the technical rehearsal, gradually started to get angrier with the cast and the production team and began to pressure everyone to rehearse with the minimum of errors if possible, and that led Esther to pretend to have sprained her ankle because of the pressure of the rehearsal, making her nervous. Ava, after Esther confessed, she apologized for the pressure. She is also angry when someone lies about a crime and pretends not to know anything.

Ava also defends people, especially Pixie when she was accused by Miss Tan of not making the solar system model, and Ezra after Mr. McGillick pointed out that she suspected he had taken her can to buy the website software for 75 dollars, and sometimes get confused by some explanations by Maudie. In "The Case of the Sleepover Secret", she shows to be very worried about Pixie when she showed to be nervous, this is because her parents were divorcing, and she was very sad that Pixie thought she had told Amelia and avoided entering in any form of contact with her. "The Case of the Copy Cat" demonstrated that Ava, at important events, was nervous, under pressure and afraid that her speech would be rejected by the public, but at the same time confused and unaware when Savannah accused her of stealing her speech. , and when she found out that Savannah had stolen her speech and copied it to pretend it was hers because she was jealous of Ava's popularity, she showed that she didn't come to the committee to compete with people, and she was grateful that her friends helped her.

Ava, in "The Case of the Fishy Fundraiser", showed that she was concerned for Amelia that she was acting weird because Toby's lemonade stand was more popular than hers, but at the same time suspicious after it he began to act rudely about the sabotage of Toby's lemonade, and then, after Maudie discovered that Toby did it to himself accidentally, Ava nevertheless made her apologise to him for being too rude. "The Case of the Incridible Fortune Teller" demonstrated that Ava gets angry when someone rolls up to give a suggestion, especially Ramona, who only stayed on the tablet and did not pay attention to the meetings before the Coins for Cure fundraiser. She also shows that she believes there are psychics after Ramona predicts that she would go to the dentist, and that caused her to be in conflict with Ezra, as he does not believe that psychics exist, but seeing that Ramona cannot predict the future, Ava was furious at see that she disrespected the privacy of others by taking pictures of her notebook with the tablet. Then, Ava and Ezra finally realized, that despite their opinions, they can still understand each other.
