Aubrey graduated from the Violin Making School of America with honors in 2011. While still in school she began working at Moroz Violins, assisting John Moroz with new making, repair, and cello restoration. After graduating, Aubrey continued working in the Moroz shop until she was asked by her former teacher, Charles Woolf, to join the teaching staff at the VMSA. After five years of teaching Woodworking, Aubrey moved to Michigan and joined the workshop at Grand Rapids Violins.
While the majority of her new instruments are cellos, she also makes violins and collaborates with fellow makers on new instruments and group builds, most notably with Christopher Jacoby.
Aubrey is a member of the American Federation of Violin and Bow Makers, and a participant in the VSA Oberlin Violin Makers Workshop. She continues to develop friendships with luthiers from around the world.
