History And Home Life
Andrea grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (Geax LSU!) where she majored in Mass Communication and spent over a decade in New York after meeting her “NY native” husband, John. While in NY, she worked in television broadcasting for both the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo Bills among other organizations. Andrea and her family moved to Dane County in 2010 after John accepted a position in Madison. A southerner at heart, she makes it her priority to remember the south Louisiana tradition of providing “Lagniappe” (translation: a little something extra) every chance she gets.
Andrea and John live in Waunakee with their four children – Carter, Caitlin, Cullen & Ceeghan and two dogs. In her free time she enjoys reading, watching movies, traveling, walking the dogs and attempting to grow plants in her garden. Her children are avid participants in sports and activities including football, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse, basketball, swimming, band and dance which fills most her free time with classes, recitals, practices and games. Andrea and her family enjoy watching Syracuse University and LSU football and lacrosse games any chance they can, especially if it’s in person.
While helping others with their Real Estate needs is Andrea’s first passion, volunteering is an easy second. She is proud to be a member of the Junior League of Madison since 2012 and is currently serving on the New Member Recruitment and Training Committee. As a member of the Junior League she especially enjoys volunteering with the Ronald McDonald house and the league’s annual “All Dressed Up” event which provides prom dresses to teenage girls. She also volunteers regularly in the Waunakee school district both in the classrooms as well as with special projects and activities. Last but not least, she helps out with the Waunakee Lacrosse program as much as she can, whether it’s picking up balls on the sidelines or baking pasta for a team dinner.
