Andrea is a life-long resident of North Carolina, with a chemistry degree from Appalachian State University. As a child, she remembers mixing powders and shampoos together to observe changes in color and consistency. Andrea has been known to dissect caterpillars or chicken hearts and keep insects in the freezer to educate her children. She has always believed adolescents can understand much more about science and their bodies if provided with comprehensible explanations. She takes pride in working as a liaison between experts and the general public trying to make sense of science. This niche, along with her interest in biology and medicine, poised Andrea to become an independent patient advocate and founder of Patient Navigation Team, LLC.
When she’s not engaging in scientific research, Andrea enjoys volunteering, supporting arts education, and spending time with her family. She resides in Summerfield and has two adult children, Ashley and Will.
