About Andrea

Andrea and her family

My Family
My husband Jim and I have been married for 21 years. We moved to Plymouth in 1995 and have loved raising our two sons in the Wayzata public school community. I worked as a stay-at-home mom for almost eight years and made good use of our wonderful parks and early childhood family education classes. When my youngest son entered kindergarten, I was thrilled to begin working at Greenwood as a Speech Language Pathologist and as a parent volunteer. This fall, my son Cooper is a freshman at Wayzata High School while Eli is a sixth grader at West Middle School.
In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, swinging kettlebells, cabin time and watching my boys play soccer and lacrosse.
