As the Educational Affairs Program Director and a Lecturer in the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability, Audrey develops educational programs and courses that connect academic learning with real world applications. In this role, Audrey serves undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars in Stanford's newest school.

She teaches the SUSTAIN 1 Know Your Planet series of courses designed to introduce undergraduates to the challenges that face our planet today and the people working on solving those problems. Audrey also developed and teaches the SUSTAIN 200 course series that supports graduate students and postdocs in developing powerful professional portfolios that include academic excellence, professional skills, and personal development.

In her role, Audrey manages the School's undergraduate peer advisors, who advocate for student needs within the School, as well as creates educational programs and social events for the undergraduate community at large. She oversees the School's academic professional program mentors, who serve as resources in professional development for graduate students and postdocs. And, she serves as the School's primary partner to the Postdoc Advisory Council, supporting the needs of postdocs across the School.

Audrey recently originated a novel Academic Professional Program, a unique certificate program designed to broaden the professional toolkit and career readiness of students and postdocs in the Doerr School of Sustainability. The program hosts a series of co-curricular educational offerings that allow undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs the chance to gain practical experiences and knowledge. These include a peer-taught Skillshare series, a faculty-led Pro-Seminar series, an alumni-focused Career Conversations series, and a variety of workshops and short courses throughout the year.
