M.S. in Ecology and Grassland Restoration, Colorado State University
B.S. in Forest and Range Management, Colorado State University
After completing her degree, Andrea worked as a field ecologist, focusing on restoring short and tall grass prairies. Eventually, she traded her hiking boots for a career with plumbing and central heat. For six years, she worked as an executive assistant for Best Buy Inc. at their international headquarters in Minnesota. To further support her passion of gardening and the outdoors, she then moved to the Willamette Valley. During her first three years at Oregon State University, she provided office support for the Extension Service and the Division of Outreach and Engagement. Coming from a family of engineers, she is very excited to now assist the College of Engineering, helping faculty, staff, and students excel.
