Born in Seattle, Washington, Audrey lived in a rural town in that state for the first 4 years of her life. Then, her family made a big trip across the country, and Gilmanton, New Hampshire became her home for the rest of her upbringing. Starting dance summer camps at the age of 4, her mother enrolled her in year-round classes at the age of 6, where she had learned and performed in many genres of dance, including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, musical theatre, and contemporary. At 12 years old, Audrey attended her first ballet summer intensive audition for Dance Theatre of Harlem, and got in! From that point on she would also attend Ellison Ballet, American Ballet Theatre NYC, and The Washington School of Ballet's summer programs, with other acceptances to the School of American Ballet and the Bolshoi Ballet's NYC/Moscow intensives.

In 2016, Audrey received a full scholarship to The Washington School of Ballet's summer intensive, and subsequently got an acceptance on another full scholarship to their year-round school program. By the end of the school year she got a promotion to the Trainee program, and by around the end of the 2017-2018 season received her Studio Company contract. 

Audrey has also started an exciting new venture as a model as she takes on her career in ballet, recently featured in Ballet Rosa and Danznmotion dancewear catalogs.
