Andrea treks her bike and muddy shoes to ICG to unite love of people with passion for nature and the outdoors. Her undergraduate studies in communication and philosophy, interwoven and followed by several years of environmental communication experience, support her role as an AmeriCorps VISTA. As volunteer coordinator, she augments the impact of the small but mighty ICG staff by recruiting and/or managing community members and volunteer groups ready to meet the organization's needs.
Drawn to the outdoors, Andrea can be found hiking, biking, and boating around the Ithaca area. More likely than not, camera, binoculars, sketchbook, and deck of cards are somewhere in tow. When not exploring, she enjoys tending her garden, hosting dinners with friends, spending time with extended family, and planning for future adventures.
