Andrea studied theater and vocal performance at the internationally acclaimed performing arts high school, Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. She continued her studies with Dr. William Trebold at The University of Southern CA and with Dr. Katherine Eberle at The University of Iowa.  In 2000, Andrea graduated from Columbia College with a BA and emphasis in music composition and biology. Andrea also earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Northwestern University. Andrea enjoys running her own business, Vital Body Yoga, in which she uses physical therapy principles and yogic techniques to help people strengthen and heal.

She performs solo and with multiple projects including Congress of Starlings and Little Queens. She has played at world famous venues like Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Halsted Market Days, Taste of Chicago, Pride Fest, Hard Rock Café, and The House of Blues. Andrea was awarded the prestigious Three Arts Excellence in Art grant to attend the Ragdale Artist’s retreat, and has composed music for films, including the award winning documentary, Brink of Survival.
