Andi's fondest memories are of family vacations to historical sites and national parks throughout the US. Through these childhood experiences, a deep appreciation and love for the natural world was born. Her father's military career brought them from Nebraska to Southern Maryland and her first exposure to the many facets of the Chesapeake Bay. A Political Science graduate from UMUC, Andi's career path took a slight detour into the faith-based sector when she took a position as an administrative assistant at a church. Now, still there after over two decades, she is grateful for the opportunity to combine her faith and deepening call to care for Creation and her professional skills in support of IPC and it's mission.
