When she made her first trip as a kid to Colorado in the 60’s, her heart told her that she had found home in the mountains here. At 17, being an avid hiker, back-packer, river rat & self proclaimed tree-hugger, the University of Colorado & the Boulder foothills seemed a perfect fit. While attending CU she lived in a rustic cabin above Jamestown, the first of several mountain communities, along with a beloved line of mountain dogs & cats, which all led her to her current home west of Boulder in 1992. Her professional background is rooted in the service industry & includes real estate, mortgage services, bookkeeping & hospitality. In between hikes, you will find Andrea volunteering with seniors, swimming or sledding with the neighbor’s kids or working in her extensive flower garden! Hiking daily for over 30 years above 6,000ft with generations of dogs has made her an avid nature enthusiast & relentless in her identification of local flora, fauna & scat. She is passionate regarding respect for all wildlife & the preservation of the integrity of the ecology of our local mtn-urban interface. Andrea lives with her husband John & her adopted pets--a lab-mix, Lucy & Maine Coon cat, Tula. She loves meeting your dogs & leading them on adventures!
