Co-Founder and COO

Andrea possesses more than 25 years of experience specializing in delivering services to people with diverse needs. Her curiosity for inspired learning and its relationship with play has grown exponentially over the years. So much so, that she decided to pursue a doctorate in educational psychology to better understand the motivation that drives learning. She was instrumental in creating Lazuli Oak, aspiring to connect people and helping them to cultivate their passions. Andrea is passionate about helping businesses simplify complex and challenging matters into easy-to-understand plans and strategies.

Andrea completed her BS at Sacred Heart University. She then received an MS from The College of Saint Rose and is currently pursuing her PhD in Educational Psychology at SUNY Albany.
