Aubree’s love for storytelling came through years of hearing stories from strangers. Following her parents’ international business and humanitarian ventures, she moved from Utah to Costa Rica to California and back. She grew up selling candies in the local tiendas in Mexico, building houses and tutoring centers in Ecuador, and attempting (multiple times) to learn how to surf off the famous Guanacaste coast. Although Aubree has spent the most time in Utah, she claims San Diego as her hometown due to her inability to navigate Utah’s grid system.
In 2020, Aubree moved to New York City and witnessed the center of the pandemic’s devastation. After a 160-day isolation period in Brooklyn, she began translating at the vaccination centers in Washington Heights and serving in the food pantries in the Bronx and Long Island. This experience sparked in her a passion for social media as a medium for communication and connection. Here, she worked with a team to provide a platform for people of all faith traditions to share their stories on social media. Managing this account reinforced Aubree’s conviction that everyone has a story worth telling.
Aubree is studying Journalism and International Relations at Brigham Young University. She has previously worked as a writer for the Daily Universe where she was able to report on Utahns in Florida during Hurricane Ian and Mike Lee’s reelection to the U.S. Senate in 2022. In her free time, she enjoys watching documentaries, composing music, and adventuring with her friends and family. Aubree is committed to continuing to tell worthwhile stories here at ABC4.
