Andrea brings a broad publishing background to every project she represents, having worked as an editor, marketer, and agent, with award-winning and best-selling authors of both fiction and nonfiction adult, youth, and children’s books. Her love for the written word began early in life, and took her to Seattle Pacific University where she majored in English, studied Literature in London, and wrote for the university’s newspaper.
Andrea started her career as a literary agent, where she contracted over 30 books with major publishers. She went on to work at NavPress, first as a publicist, where she directed and implemented publicity plans for the publisher, including release events, author signings, media appearances, and trade shows, and later as an editor, where she helped develop a new line of books targeting college students.
Andrea was recently an acquisitions editor at David C. Cook, where she acquired dozens of book titles, including a Christy Award winner, and a book that Publisher’s Weekly deemed one of the best books published in 2008.
In her free time, Andrea enjoys driving her red Jeep Wrangler, traveling, reading, hiking, and skiing.
