Audrey grew up in a Northern suburb of Atlanta, Georgia. She just graduated in the Spring of 2021 with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Education. Audrey is excited to be serving at St. Augustine School this year. She looks forward to learning alongside her community and growing in faith with them.
I, Audrey Smit, commit myself to be an Augustinian Volunteer, to both serve with and learn from my new community and to work towards a closer relationship with God through them.
