A Salinas, CA native, Andrea studied Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley and mastered in Counseling Psychology (with a specialization in Child and Adolescent Therapy) at John F. Kennedy University. Her greatest passion is working with children and high-risk youth who experienced trauma.
She feels most successful when others around her have the tools they need to be their best selves. Whether that takes the form of parents who are able to better understand and address the needs of their child, or team members who are able to grow into leadership roles, Andrea’s philosophy is to always improve the experience of all parties involved one interaction at a time.
As the Senior Vice President of Behavioral Health and Organizational Leadership, Andrea oversees the Behavioral Health and Early Intervention Services departments respectively, while driving leadership development for our staff of 550+ employees.
