If a career could be made out of socializing, Andrea would be the industry leader. She believes that all great ideas start with a great conversation and puts that to use by connecting people and organizations who want to help ignite generosity in Minnesota.
A South Dakota native and Southwest Minnesota State University alum, Andrea joined GiveMN in 2016, bringing a background from the Minnesota corporate and nonprofit sectors. She started and led a corporate foundation that created new relationships with nonprofits and other corporations through giving and events. During her time at Open Arms of Minnesota, Andrea led major fundraising events to record-breaking results.
Andrea has served on the board of TeamWomenMN, and has been named one of the “Top 25 Women to Watch in Business” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
When she’s not connecting people through purpose and ideas, you’ll find Andrea checking out amazing restaurants from Bemidji to Barcelona.
