Andrea believes that all things should be designed with empathy toward the human experience and more importantly, the intention to create a positive impact.
As a journalism student at Northwestern University, she produced documentaries capturing the stories of marginalized individuals such as the LGBTQ community in Seoul, South Korea. After graduation, she learned the significance of hospitality as the events coordinator at The Little Owl, helping clients celebrate their intimate life moments.
Most recently, Andrea served as the community operations manager at Spoon University, where she re-imagined and built the processes through which Spoon student contributors are trained, create content and build local teams on campuses. She is excited to leverage both classroom and experiential learning at SVA to build upon her passion of engaging with a broad audience and creating humanistic solutions that address real-world problems.
