A native Chicagoan, Andrea was first exposed to classical music at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Although an economics major, friends studying in the Music Conservatory introduced her to the joy of live music performance. After graduation she returned to Chicago, working in the Financial and Economics Research Department at Harris Bank. While attending Northwestern University to get an MBA in Finance, and participating in a show of the Fantastiks, she met her husband, Doug. After their marriage they built a real estate investment and property management business.
Andrea has been active at St. Francis in the Foothills UMC for many years, holding various committee positions, acting as congregation Lay Leader for several years and participating in raising funds for a new sanctuary. She is also involved with the Pima County Interfaith Council (PCIC) training local leaders and advocating with state and local governments around issues important to families.
Andy and her husband have been True Concord subscribers since 2009 and have hosted TCVO musicians. She is excited to support True Concord in numerous ways and looks forward to working with the Board on areas of finance and administration.
