Aubrey Odefey joined the Hope House staff as a residential advisor in January 2022. Prior to joining the Hope House team, Aubrey worked for an applied behavioral therapy organization as a behavior interventionist. In this role, she supported young children diagnosed with autism to reach and maintain behavioral and communication-oriented goals. Aubrey is also a full-time student at Prescott College in Arizona; she is on track to attain her master’s in counseling from Prescott in this remote program by 2024. In addition to her studies, Aubrey enjoys volunteering as a side walker and horse leader for an equine-assisted therapy program in Longmont, CO called Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center. In these roles she provides support for children and adults with developmental and physical disabilities as they learn and practice horsemanship skills. Aubrey is originally from Connecticut but attended The University of Colorado, Boulder to attain her bachelor’s in psychology in 2020. This opportunity allowed her to appreciate the beautiful Colorado sunshine and endless outdoor adventures. Aubrey enjoys hiking, camping and is cautiously learning to ski this year.
