Career: Andrea started rowing her sophomore year of high school at Orlando Area Rowing Society (OARS). She joined the team her freshman year and has been rowing ever since. During her freshman year, Andrea rowed in the 2nd novice eight and placed 3rd at SIRA 2017. During her junior year, Andrea rowed in the women's pair for the 2019 ACRA championships. After only four weeks of practice prior to the race, the pair made it to Grand Finals!
Favorite Memory about Crew: "My favorite memory about crew was rowing the women's pair for ACRA 2019. The two races in the pair were probably the most difficult but the most rewarding I've ever rowed. We only had four weeks to get comfortable in the pair and learn how to row well in it before racing it. It was so exciting when we made it to Grand Finals because we raced against other women's pairs that had been rowing together longer than we had. We were able to see the hard work we put in the weeks prior pay off. It was an amazing feeling to contribute to the women's team championship!"
