Audrey is passionate about entrepreneurship. Audrey started her first real business in 1999. She realized that she was a single mom who wanted to create a nice life for her daughter who was 8 years old at the time. So, she had this idea for a plus size fashion doll which was more realistic than the Barbie Doll. She told a friend about the idea and the friend thought it was a great idea. The two became partners and Big Beautiful Dolls, LLC was born June 1999. They invented the first plus-size fashion dolls. Audrey went on to start her own newspaper titled Women In Business Today. The paper profiled women who were already in business. Audrey later became a consultant with the Rutgers & Kean University Small Business Development Center in New Jersey. She also sat on the advisory board for the Rutgers University Small Business Development Center.
The paper opened many doors for Audrey. She was asked to be interviewed on a local radio station. The host liked her so much that he brought her on full time with her own show which had the same title as her newspaper, Women In Business Today. Audrey did the show for one year on WSOU 89.5 FM until her husbands’ job transferred him to North Carolina. While in North Carolina, Audrey decided that she would start her own TV show. So, she walked into a local TV station in Rocky Mount, NC and pitched the show idea to the station manager and the Women In Business Today TV show was born.
From 2010 to 2013 Audrey was the host of The Ask Audrey Show on Harvest Radio WKMB 1070 AM.
