Born the baby of her family with quite a number of years between herself and her older sister, Audrey had been loved and spoiled from day one, having a close and influential family in Forthyngton, England. She never really wanted for anything and from the time she could walk, she would try to follow her sister around, always curious about what everyone else was doing and wanting to be able to do it as well.
This followed into her childhood years as well, Audrey's curiosity never seeming to leave and her love for her family seeming to grow stronger all the time. She idolised her sister, Mereditha, and wanted to be very much like her, even to the point of finding the perfect husband and having a happy and perfect wedding and marriage just like Meri had. Unfortunately, Audrey was still a little too young to understand when tragedy struck and Meri lost the baby that had been growing in her tummy, something that had fascinated Audrey. And all the little girl knew was that there was no baby anymore and she wasn't going to be an aunty.
Things seemed to change a little with her sister after that, but at the same time Audrey saw less and less of her as time went on and she grew older and was enrolled into St Katherine's, where she quickly made many friends and seemed to become lost in her own world as the Magical world became the new exciting thing to learn more about. She focused on her studies between doing other activities and meeting boys, though when Meri returned to England for a time after she and Adrian had divorced, Audrey's focus returned to her sister and trying to cheer her up. She worried for her having remembered Meri as such a happy and outgoing person when Audrey was a child, to seeing her as somewhat a wreck was scary.
During this time Audrey's grades slipped a fraction, and with the departure of Meri when she returned to Australia, they didn't get a whole lot better either. Audrey tried her best, but her sister was always on her mind, and then there was news of the floods in Queensland that wiped out Fox Heights, and she became ever more concerned with the world outside of school.
It came to a point where her studies had suffered right when they were most crucial, and after a long discussion with her parents and the heads of the education, Audrey proposed that she study for an extra six months in Australia where she could live near Meri and experience a different place, and pick her grades back up so that she could have more options for university. After much consideration her parents agreed, and Audrey moved to Australia to study an extra semester at Tallygarunga.
After graduating with pretty good marks if she says so herself (and she does), Audrey decided to get work experience while deciding what she wanted to do with her life. So she began working at Tally as a receptionist, a role she enjoyed and decided to stick with while she studied teaching via correspondence. Once she graduated, she occasionally filled in for teachers now and then, at least until she ended up becoming the Assistant to the Headmaster, and boy does she take the responsibility seriously.
