As Program Director at There With Care, Andrea works with families and social workers to assess their needs and stressors to determine how to best assist and support them. Her favorite part of her role is getting to know the families and hearing about their unique journeys as they navigate the critical illness of their child.
Andrea started with There With Care by volunteering doing family deliveries and preparing gas cards for distribution. She knew, from the moment she first walked in for volunteer orientation, that this was where she wanted to spend her time.
Before joining There With Care, Andrea worked in a pediatric ophthalmology practice for 15 years. Her role included working with families in pediatric oncology, allowing her to experience what families with children in a medical crisis face. She has now found her true home at There With Care and is constantly amazed by the grace she witnesses in the face of a truly turbulent time in their lives.
