I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andrea on complex projects with many components, phases, contributors, and stakeholders. She used her deep network to build best-of-breed creative teams, and her broad design expertise to direct those teams in solving totally new problems. She’s also comfortable collaborating with engineers, inspiring and being inspired by them to design better solutions together.
Director of Systems at Obscura Digital
Through my time at ModCloth, I had the pleasure of having Andrea as my manager. She cared deeply about the team's success as well as each individual's growth. She made it a priority to make sure I was learning rather than handing me the answers. She always asked the right questions to help guide me through my design process. Through this management style, I learned how to be a better designer.

I worked with Andrea for two years as a direct report, and I can say without a doubt that she is an exceptional leader and manager. Not only is she approachable and empathetic, she really cares about you as a person and takes the initiative to look out for your best interest.
Senior Product Designer at Patreon
Over the course of two and a half years working on her team, I became not only an Experience Designer, but also a better and more strategic communicator, a more high-level thinker, and a stronger leader. I directly, and frequently, credit her leadership with my current career path and happiness therein.
