Andrea came to Arizona with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and a Master’s in Elementary Education from her home state of southern California. After teaching in both elementary and middle schools, she decided to try out behavioral health, and we’re so lucky she did! Andrea began working for MMHC in 2005 as an SMI Case Manager, while pursuing her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. She then worked as an Adult Therapist before advancing to SMI Clinical Site Supervisor in 2011. With strong values rooted in advocacy, accountability, and a commitment to quality of service delivery, Andrea is now our SMI Clinical Director. In her spare time, Andrea plays the electric bass, sings, cooking/BBQ, and “glamping” with her family and friends.
