Audra

Audra-Picture

Audra began in the industry at 17 years of age when she was scouted by an Elite Model Scout in Toronto. Throughout her successful eight-year modelling career, Audra was booked for fashion shows, magazines, catalogues, print campaigns, music videos, and TV commercials. Following her modelling career, Audra’s employment in the industry expanded into the business of Modelling. She headed up the Men’s Division as a Booking Agent for Penny Noble Agency, now recognized as one of the top talent agencies in Toronto, Noble Abrams Caplan.

Audra brought her experience, industry knowledge, and contacts to her hometown of Belleville to accomplish two goals. First, to start a family with her husband Joe and the second, to develop and promote local aspiring models and talent who have the potential for a career in the exciting and rewarding fields of modelling and acting. With Mode Elle celebrating over 25 years in the industry Audra decided to open a new division dedicated to promoting serious actors titled Anderson Talent Management. Audra has countless success stories to her credit and the list continues to grow!

Audra shares the belief with many agents that potential models and actors must be the complete package: beautiful inside and out. Audra will tell you that you have to be motivated, professional, driven, as well as be kind, humble, grounded, and most of all possess a positive personality and energy in order to be a success in these competitive industries!
