She began her career as a Biologist with a local environmental consulting firm in Paso Robles where her primary responsibilities included conducting wildlife and botanical surveys, habitat assessments, preparing biological resource documents, and managing various regulatory permitting projects in the region. Audrey also volunteers at the Morro Bay Museum of Natural History as their docent Curator of Mammals and occasionally leads birding field trips for the Morro Coast Audubon Society with her husband.
