She later went on to work for Aetna Insurance Company. Her next job led her to a career with Prudential Connecticut Realty in Wethersfield. Audrey’s success in Realty led her to the Presidents Club, Multimillion Dollar Club (when a million dollars a lot of money), and many other awards to numerous to mention. Audrey and a teammate brought all the talent into the Hartford Civic Center, where her hard work led to venues like Elvis and Neil Diamond, plus all the boat, car and motorcycle shows, as well as the first ever indoor rodeo to the Center. Audrey later went on to work for the Grand Union Personal Office, which she personally ran in Wethersfield. When they closed and moved to New York, they ask Audrey to manage that office as well. She later moved on to manage a podiatrist office for two podiatrists. Audrey did all the bookwork, helped in the operation room, put casts on patients, and did the billing out the door. Audrey and her husband moved to Ocala in 1993 where she got involved right away in a number of clubs including the Royal Dames, Red Hatters Investment Club, volunteering at the Ocala Hospital, and joined leadership of Ocala. Audrey joined numerous Bible Study groups, and was on the Baptismal Community at First Baptist.

She was also a Greeter, and helped a Pastor with one of the largest Christians Single Groups at that time, from three states to First Church of Christ in Wethersfield.
