Andrea is a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner, Pilates Instructor and Group Fitness Instructor.

Prior to pursuing a career in holistic health and nutrition, Andrea spent nine years working in marketing/advertising on global, culture driven lifestyle brands like Audi and The North Face. In March 2013, Andrea decided to make a career change and pursue her passion of health and wellness, fitness and nutrition.

In her practice, Andrea acknowledges and respects the unique biochemistry of every individual. She believes in a personalized approach to nutrition without any one perfect diet. She has a passion for empowering people to achieve optimal health through nutrition and movement.

Andrea attained her certification as a Nutrition Therapy Practitioner from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado. Her education was primarily administered by practitioners of functional medicine, which is what drew her to Colorado Natural Medicine and the work of Dr. Adam Graves. Functional medicine addresses theunderlying or root causes of dysfunction in the body and seeks to restore balance from within. Her approach to nutrition comprises functional medicine strategies, evidence-based testing and research, and customized protocols specific to the needs of the individual.

Andrea believes optimal health is a culmination of health in all areas of life – mind, body, and spirit. Part of that equation is movement. As a Polestar educated Pilates Instructor and Certified Cycling Instructor, she incorporates movement into her practice of whole body health and healing. Her career in nutrition and fitness was born out of personal commitment to both, and a sincere belief that both are necessary for optimal health.

Andrea thinks that living a life of purpose is a choice. “If you can imagine, or believe in a reason for your life and choose to let your understanding guide your actions, then by definition you are living a life of purpose.”Ben Michealis, PhD Based on this premise, she is building a nutrition and movement practice consistent with her passion and life purpose.

Andrea is a member of the Colorado Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the National Association of Nutrition Professionals.

Andrea earned her undergraduate degree from Michigan State University. Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Andrea enjoys spending her free time in the mountains with her husband and teammate, Chris.
