Andrea received her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Western Kentucky University and then went on to achieve her Physical Therapy Assistant degree from Jefferson Community and Technical College. Her passion has always been with sports and overall wellness which prompted her to seek a nutrition certificate in Dietetics in 2009 from Eastern Kentucky University.
Andrea has participated in high end athletics the majority of her life. As a 3 year captain and starter for WKU’s Women’s Division I soccer program, Andrea’s original career plan was to play at the national level but unfortunately the National Women’s Soccer League folded the year of Andrea’s graduation and a new career choice was in order. “Physical therapy initially found me and since then I have enjoyed the journey of returning people to the full spectrum of wellness. I am honored and blessed to facilitate care and it truly is a rewarding opportunity to be in the position that I am.”
Recently Andrea is a proud 2013 and 2014 Louisville Ironman finisher and continues to compete in triathlons nationwide as well as in road racing. She uses this passion and discipline that she has with sports and applies it to her work in physical therapy. Her career focus has been on orthopedics, sports injury and training protocols, and on Women’s Health diagnoses including pelvic dysfunction and prenatal and postpartum. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, the Kentucky Physical Therapy Association, and the International Pelvic Pain Society.
When Andrea needs a break from training the experience of travel is one of her favorite things. You can also often find Andrea in the kitchen exploring new recipes. She attends both St. Leonard Church and Southeast Christian Church.
