Andrea is a Dubuque native and member of Holy Spirit Parish.  Mother of six and wife to Travis, she leads a busy life packed with carpools, appointments, errands, laundry, and most recently has gotten her first taste of the moodiness of a teenager.  Along the way, Andrea participated in Lay Formation and completed studies at Loras College earning a Masters in Ministry.  

Through it all she has found herself searching – for meaning, for purpose, for affirmation, for love.  All of this searching has led her down many paths in her life.  God has always been a part of her journey but she has struggled to always put Him first.  She looks to the lives of saints such as the Blessed Mother Mary, St. Therese and St. Teresa to point her to God and help her understand more fully His will for her.  It is with hope that she looks forward to the continued journey that lies ahead.
