Andrea joined the board of Hope is Hear for two compelling reasons. Firstly, to meaningfully help people who have Bipolar Disorder, an illness affecting millions of people globally but yet is still not as widely understood. Secondly, to educate the public on what Bipolar Disorder is and how they can support the community of people affected.
With a passion for mental health and understanding the science behind it, Andrea obtained a Masters degree in Physiology and Biophysics from Georgetown University after completing her Bachelors in Neuroscience and Psychology at Vanderbilt University.
She is currently a Medical Assistant for Sherber+Rad, a dermatology and plastic surgery private practice in the heart of Washington, DC. She is also the Clinical Research Coordinator for a Phase III Clinical Study for the FDA.
Before moving to Washington DC, Andrea served as a research analyst in a clinical neuroscience laboratory at Vanderbilt specifically studying serious mental illnesses (mainly schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and substance use disorder). She has published papers on her research in the journals Schizophrenia Research and Schizophrenia Bulletin. When she wasn’t in the lab, she spent time volunteering at the Park Center in Nashville, an outpatient facility for people with serious mental illness, assisting them with life skills, employment, and independent living.
