Biography: Audrey was born in San Diego and raised locally in Encinitas where she grew up playing tennis, going to the beach, and exploring the beautiful outdoors. Audrey studied at UC Santa Barbara where she earned her bachelor’s degree in sociology. After graduating, she decided to take a few years to gain experience working in numerous settings focusing on neurology, spinal cord injury, hands, and orthopedic conditions.


She went on to receive her master’s degree from the University of St. Augustine in San Marcos and completed her clinical rotations in Wyoming (in the winter… BURR) where she worked at an outpatient pediatric clinic, as well as Palm Springs at an inpatient acute rehab facility. After graduating, she decided San Diego is where she saw her future as a practitioner and the rest is history!

Audrey has always had a passion for working in the neurological setting and the gratitude she feels watching her client’s make gains in therapy. She is very grateful to be a part of the RU team and looking forward to her future with the company!
