Andrea first became interested in ASL 4 years ago when her first child was born. She took a baby sign language course when he was only 3 months old and was immediately hooked! She and her family saw first hand how much it had helped her son communicate at an early age, so they continued signing when her second was born and continue to sign today.
Andrea has completed an ASL course through Signing Online as well as obtained her My Smart Hands teaching certificate, she is thrilled to be able to share the gift of sign language with other families.
Andrea is no stranger to teaching as she was a dance instructor for 6 years, and a tennis coach for 2. She has also worked in restaurant management and most recently in the finance industry before settling down to raise her two young children. She currently works from home, performs in community theatre, and teaches preschool dance in her spare time.
