Andrea began playing volleyball as a 4th grader and was a three sport athlete throughout high school competing in volleyball, basketball and softball. Andrea received many school and league awards during four years of high school competition. While playing collegiate volleyball at Linfield College for Head Coach Shane Kimura, Andrea was a 4-year starting middle blocker and outside hitter.

In the summer months, Andrea directs and coaches in the Reign Beach program, training athletes in the sand volleyball game. Our Reign doubles-teams have enjoyed great success in the sand over the last five years. Andrea believes that competing in volleyball provides young athletes opportunities to challenge themselves and develop as strong, confident young women. She utilizes the club experience as a venue for young women to engage in life lessons that extend beyond athletic competition. Her belief that rigorous training, team concepts, and discipline are necessary on the volleyball court guides her work with athletes.
