20 Fun Things You Didn’t Know About Audrey
Happy Autumn! To kick of the season, it’s OMS Audrey’s turn to share 20 facts about herself – and a fun (nerdy) photo! Read on to learn some fun tidbits about her.
- I hail from Wisconsin and put cheese on pretty much everything (Go Packers!).
- I used to barrel race for my high school equestrian team – and still enjoy riding my quarter horse, Bud.
- I’ve worked at a number of international film festivals, including Sundance, Austin and Cannes (despite the fact that the only French word I know is allons-y, which I learned from watching Doctor Who).
- I dual-majored in English and Film in college, and have made some truly mediocre (if not all-out-bad) student films.
- My husband, Michael, is a mechanical engineer – he designs natural gas engines for on-highway fleets. And thank goodness he’s good at math, because I can barely calculate a correct tip on a bill.
- I’ve just recently been getting more into cooking and am finding out that I love it! I’m currently perfecting my carbonara and tiramisu recipes, and we make our own tomato sauce at home in one huge pot.
- I can rap the entirety of Will Smith’s “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It.”
- I am a huge Notre Dame football fan – if you talk smack about my alma mater, you’re in for some trouble.
- My favorite films include The Lord of the Rings trilogy (which I vehemently count as one whole film), Hitchcock’s Notorious, and William Wyler’s Roman Holiday – because Audrey Hepburn as the princess of an unnamed country is really the only thing I aspire to be.
- On that note, I will definitely be attending the midnight premier of the newest installment of Star Wars, and I’m ridiculously excited about it.
- I’m also a major TV nerd. If I’m cleaning the house, working out, or just generally existing, there will definitely be Netflix playing in the background.
- I’m Catholic and got married at the basilica at Notre Dame – quite recently, in fact!
- I am always reading everything and anything I can get my hands on. Recent favorites include Rules of Civility, All the Light We Cannot See, anything by Kurt Vonnegut, and A Song of Ice and Fire (write faster, George, please!)
- I’m almost 6’ tall, and still love to wear high heels on occasion.
- I play both the clarinet and the piano (poorly nowadays, but I’d like to pick back up with piano lessons someday).
- In addition to classical music, I love EDM, and often can be found listening to some bass-heavy Trap music during the workday.
- I am decidedly a dog person, but don’t have one at the moment – someday soon though!
- I love to travel, and have spent a good amount of time in Italy and France.
- I play in a fantasy league for the Bachelor/Bachelorette TV shows (for actual money) and have even won a season.
- I love purple. Purple EVERYTHING. Clothes, shoes, phone case, wallet…you name it, I probably own it in purple.

I have a childhood secret. I was one of those kids who bee-lined to the souvenir shop trinket racks in search of my name on…
