Andrea has been the Executive Director of Dear Jack since May of 2015. She has a unique blend of for-profit and non-profit experience and has directed cause marketing and development initiatives for youth based organizations and marketing efforts for media, advertising and investment firms growing their initiatives from infancy into long-term financially sustaining programs. In her spare time, you’ll find her enjoying the Colorado lifestyle; snowboarding in the winter, climbing and mountain biking in the summer, with the occasional surf trip to escape the winter cold. And, we’ve heard she’s easily convinced if you bring her mint chocolate chip ice cream.
What Andrea values most about her role as Executive Director of DJF:
“The opportunity to connect with young adult patients and survivors through DJF sponsored programs. If we, as an organization, can help make a life-threatening cancer diagnosis less scary by providing hope, resources, and a community, then we’re on the right path. I am in awe of each AYA patient and survivor we work with. They inspire me everyday to achieve the impossible.”
