A transplant to Walla Walla, Andrea was born and raised in Northern California before moving here for college. She explored voice, pottery, graphic design, and Spanish while working on her B.S. in English Literature and Creative Writing at Walla Walla University. After college, she briefly worked as an adjunct professor teaching College Writing at her alma mater, picking up a side job as a server at a local restaurant and café.

She ultimately fell in love with hospitality, becoming a shift lead, and then assistant general manager, learning all she could about food, wine, and team management.

Coming to work at Pepper Bridge as Tasting Room Manager was a natural transition as she continues to learn and welcome others into the captivating world of wine.
