Audra is the owner of Brewed For Her Ledger, LLC, a management consultancy firm focused on providing guidance to the craft brewing and cider communities. Prior to owning her own company she served as Dogfish Head Craft Brewery's Controller 2009-2010 and Mother Earth Brewing's Chief Financial Officer 2011-2014. She has been working exclusively in craft beer for 9 years. A graduate from the prestigious Kenan-Flagler OneMBA program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Audra possesses over a decade and a half of experience in senior leadership roles in craft brewing, manufacturing, services, non-profits and startups. She earned her undergraduate degree in accounting and business management (double major) from Loras College (Dubuque, IA) in 1997. Her passions include home brewing, mobile marketing, crafting stories from numbers, and paying it forward. When you won't find her on the beach surfing or in the mountains hiking, you'll find her blazing the trails racing, camping out of her FJ, backpacking, and exploring our beautiful mountains.
In January 2017, BFHL added Brian Zick to the team as a Financial Analyst. Brian is a CPA who came to us from Bernard Robinson & Company in Greensboro. He graduated from Appalachian State University in 2008 with a degree in marketing, then subsequently returned to earn a second degree in accounting in 2013.
