Audrey Denny is running to unseat Doug LaMalfa and become the new U.S. Representative for California’s 1st Congressional District, which includes Butte, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Tehama, Nevada, Glenn, and Placer counties.
Audrey spent her childhood on her family’s farm and ranch in Central California, growing grapes and hay while raising cattle and horses. Her father was a Vietnam veteran and her mother was a leader in their church parish. Audrey learned to work hard and efficiently before and after school to accomplish all that needed to be done to keep the family business running smoothly through both prosperous and hard times. She developed a strong respect for land and natural resources, which she has carried with her throughout her education and career endeavors.
From an early age, Audrey was active in 4-H and other service learning organizations. She was particularly involved in the FFA and served as a California FFA State Officer. She also served on a team of National Beef Ambassadors representing the beef industry around the country.
Audrey worked her way through college in the food and beverage industry in service, management, and consultative positions. She earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Agricultural Education from California State University, Chico. Her master’s thesis was recognized with an award as the best education thesis in the California State University system that year.
After college, Audrey designed and taught agriculture courses at California State University, Chico. She became well-known for her ability to inspire and engage students through her enthusiastic and pragmatic approach to delivering curriculum. She spent a year as a volunteer working with rural youth on agriculture projects in El Salvador, and another year providing agricultural education in West Africa while living in Ghana.
Today, Audrey is in her third year as a Senior Learning Designer at Vivayic, designing learning strategy and curriculum for worldwide agricultural corporations, and organizations like the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture, National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and the World Bank. She spends her days architecting learning and development solutions that further business and organizational goals.
Audrey is currently the president of the board of Cristosal, an internationally renowned human rights organization based in Central America. She also serves on the mission committee at Bidwell Presbyterian Church in Chico, and coordinated a city-wide service day called “Serve Chico.” On the first day of the Oroville Dam spillway disaster, thousands of people were pouring into Chico, and shelters were being put up around town. Audrey rushed to help the effort at her own church and assisted in implementing a system for collecting resources and getting them to the shelters that needed them.
Audrey has a deeply-rooted devotion to service and is passionate about our environment and community. Her work ethic, and professional training enable her to learn quickly, communicate effectively, and to inspire others to action. Audrey’s experience working with people of all backgrounds while inspiring change through action and teaching will help her to represent the North State effectively.
