Audrey grew up in San Diego dancing and performing on stage to her favorite dance styles – jazz and contemporary. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree in business management from National University, Audrey began her career working for a non-profit teaching and managing after-school aerobic dance programs all over San Diego County. This sparked her love for recreation programs and her passion for public service.
Audrey has more than 17 years in the parks and recreation field. Prior to “coming home” to the City of Poway as the Director of Community Services, she served as the Recreation Superintendent for the City of National City. From 2007 to 2014, Audrey held supervisory roles in the City of Poway specifically at Old Poway Park, Lake Poway, Community Park, and the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. When given the chance to manage the Poway Center for the Performing Arts on two different occasions, she jumped at the opportunity and loved working behind the scenes.
Audrey believes in the mission of the Community Services Department: to enrich the community through an exceptional blend of recreation, arts, leisure, and cultural programs. She is especially committed to bringing the arts to Poway residents and seeing the Poway Center for the Performing Arts succeed.
