This would lead her to participate in many local theatre events, recitals, and dance competitions throughout her life. In high school, Aubrey was a member of the Flower Mound High School Rosettes Drill Team where she served as a social officer. Her time on drill team allowed her to dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, perform in Los Angeles, and compete in major competitions across the state of Texas.
