Aubrey made her national television debut on the first season of the ESPN original series “Beg, Borrow and Deal.” The reality show pitted her team against another in a cross-country race where they had to complete sports related tasks, relying solely on their wits and sports knowledge, carrying only their ID’s and the clothes on their backs!
An exciting accomplishment for Aubrey is her experience dancing for three professional sports teams. In her two seasons with “Football’s Fabulous Females,” Aubrey was featured in the Oakland Raiderettes calendars, and even landed in the video game NFL 2K3, where game creators used motion sensors to capture her moves, to use for the animated cheerleaders in the game. She also had a stint with another NFL team, the Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders. However, her first Pro Dance experience was in the NBA, as a member of the Sacramento Kings “FastBreak” dance team. Aubrey is a published author, contributing her writing skills and knowledge about the world of Pro Cheer and Dance, in The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Pro Cheerleader.
Aubrey was born and raised in the Bay Area, California, and earned her B.S. in Broadcast Journalism from San Jose State University. To date, her unassuming personality, jet-set lifestyle and blossoming career has taken her all over the U.S. and abroad, but she’s not slowing down! She plans to continue working in the entertainment industry, traveling and making more new friends along the way!
Aubrey is also a Mommy Blogger who talks about motherhood and parenting on her site 53 Weeks.
