Riverside Staff & Elders




Andrea was born and raised on Long Island. She went to Valparaiso University for college and then moved to Fort Myers to get out of the cold. She is married to David and has two girls; Tabitha and Isabella along with two dogs and a cat. Her family began attending Riverside Church in 2010.  Andrea has spent her time at Riverside volunteering in both Kids Ministry and Student Ministry.


Prior to joining the staff in February 2024, Andrea worked for the Lee County School District for over 20 years in various roles from primary teacher, instructional technology specialist, special education teacher, and ESE specialist for both schools and children under 5. Andrea is excited to Champion Children and Families as her role as the Kids Ministry Coordinator. She will work closely with the NextGen team to teach children the most important thing they can learn, the Gospel. 


Andrea is excited to share the love of Jesus with children and families at Riverside. In her spare time you can find her at the beach, running, hiking, listening to music and spending quality family time.
