Andrea joined the Swiftsure Team in the spring of 2010 after many years of trail riding and horse packing in the backcountry of Idaho and Montana with her family. She is so grateful to be a part of this wonderful family of riders, horses, volunteers and staff.
Her childhood was spent living in many different places such as Chicago, New York, Paris and Boston. Because of all the moving around as a child she got the bug to explore new places and headed to University of Denver where she studied Hospitality Management and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains and mountain living.
She moved to the Wood River Valley in the summer of 1987 and has called this home ever since. She spent over 12 years working in the outdoor industry, first for Scott USA and then as an independent sales representative traveling the intermountain west. After her daughter was born in 1995, she decided to stay closer to home and worked for a travel publication for the next 10 years. Her pride and joy is her daughter and loved raising her in the Wood River Valley, where they spent time trail riding, hiking, camping and exploring the Sawtooth Mountains and beyond.
When she is not at Swiftsure Ranch she loves spending time with her daughter, skiing, hiking with her dogs, cooking and gardening.
