Born in the Oil Capital of Alabama, Citronelle, Audrey made her way to the Magic City by way of the University of Montevallo, where she earned a B.A. in English. Outside of the office, Audrey enjoys spending time with her husband and son, as well as painting, writing, and cooking.
p.s. Yes, that's her real South Alabama accent.
