Andrea is a graduate Long Island University, C.W. Post’s, Bachelor’s & Master’s degree programs. She excels in the education field as a revered elementary school teacher in the North Merrick School District, where she is beloved by her students and their parents alike. Andrea is eager to be a part of the Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation board and dedicate time to raising awareness and education about Celiac Disease. She first learned about Celiac Disease as it was being diagnosed throughout her family, only years later to be diagnosed herself, and now lives a gluten-free lifestyle. She has already become quite knowledgeable about the gluten-free lifestyle, and can be found on weekends making gluten-free brownies, cookies, cakes, and anything else that tastes great! She hopes to become a big part in raising Celiac Disease awareness and to continue to be a supportive friend and family member to those around her diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
