Growing up on a small family farm in Madison, Missouri, Andrea spent her childhood working with the cow/calf operation and putting up hay during the summers. She is the youngest of six children in a close-knit family. Andrea earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture at MU, while working part time at Equine Medical, where she started as a member of the barn crew in 2019. Her motivation and determination to succeed served her well in school and as a member of the EMS team. In her free time, Andrea enjoys playing with her 3 dogs, riding one of her 4 horses, hanging out with friends and spending time with her family.
