Andrea has been working as a veterinary assistant for 32 years. Very early in her professional life, she decided to make veterinary medicine a lifelong career due to her intense compassion and drive to help animals in need. Andrea worked in Pennsylvania from 1985 to 2008, when she then became a military spouse, which afforded the opportunity to work all over the United States, including 4 years in emergency medicine. After moving to Maryland at the end of 2016, she was drawn to Paradise because of its dedication to progressive veterinary care and its importance to animal welfare. She is committed to helping educate pet owners of the need for veterinary care and the services animal care professionals can provide.
Andrea enjoys spending her free time traveling with her husband and loving on her two dogs and three cats, Evee, Munchkin, Sorren, Ditto, and Forrest. She also enjoys outdoor adventures, home DIY projects, and gardening.
