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!
A unique 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.” 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, and a short story in Miso for Life: A Melting Pot of Thoughts.
