Andrea grew up in Minnesota but after receiving her degree in physical therapy she moved and worked in northern Virginia. Her career thus far has been working in outpatient orthopedics. Recently, she became a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist to continue to further her career and moved to the west coast to broaden her horizons. Andrea's passion for physical therapy started at an early age, not through personal injury but with seeing the potential to help those around her with both prevention and ability to return to function from injury. Andrea enjoys being active, hiking, running, playing soccer, cooking, drawing, traveling and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
