Audrey Halpin

Specialist, Quality Control / Country Music Enthusiast

Audrey is a hard-working, conscientious, and self-motivated worker. She first joined the team as a Marketing Intern after graduating from The University of Alabama with a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship, Magna Cum Laude. After a summer of interning, Audrey became a Marketing Specialist where she continues her work in marketing, social media, content creation, and podcasts, while also pursuing her MBA from Belmont University Massey College of Business. Outside of work, she enjoys going to concerts, Alabama football games in Bryant Denny Stadium, and beach trips down in Florida.

What is a typical day at Cygnal like for you?
A typical day at Cygnal for me is involved in quality checks, marketing, content review, podcast production, and many more exciting tasks. Within my department, I get to collaborate and brainstorm with a fantastic team daily!

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…
Knowledge is power. Whether you are learning in academics, work, or life in general, it is important to continue to grow and challenge yourself!

Who is someone you admire?
Kristen Cavallari. I admire her entrepreneurial spirit. She made a great life through celebrity status, but she decided to open up her own company, Uncommon James, which has become one of the most popular retail companies in the country. Even after her show “Very Cavallari” ended, she was determined to continue to grow by expanding headquarters and opening up new stores. When I first moved to Nashville, I worked as a sales associate at the flagship store, where I was able to represent her incredible brand. It was an awesome experience!

What was your first job?
My first job was working as a lifeguard at North River Yacht Club in Tuscaloosa, AL. Fun fact: Nick Saban frequently golfs there.
