Audrey began her career as a legislative aide in the Colorado Senate. She then moved into public affairs and corporate PAC management roles in the utility and energy sector.

Her background in state legislature, corporate public affairs, campaigns, and lobbying has given her a comprehensive view of the way stakeholders interact to navigate the political and regulatory landscape.
