Andrea is a dually board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner and licensed massage therapist with a strong foundation in holistic therapies. Andrea brings a unique combination of skills and talents into the service of her clients and patients.
Andrea was born and raised in Carson City, and is part of an old local family dating back to the late 1800’s. She graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Phoenix. She loves spending time with her family and being outdoors with her dogs. The beauty and energy of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Lake Tahoe ensure that this remains her home and community.
Andrea’s interest in holistic therapies and healing was the inspiration to move forward with building Sierra Nevada Holistic Services while breaking away from a psychiatric nursing career. Her specialty is therapeutic massage that utilizes aspects of Structural and Functional Integration, Myofascial Release, Complete Decongestive Therapy (lymphedema therapy), and medical work. She enjoys working with clients of all age groups and health issues.
As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Andrea enjoys building an active working relationship with her patients to achieve their health and wellness goals. Through the combination of Western and Eastern medical approaches, she works with patients to begin making transformational shifts in self-care to managing chronic illness. She focuses on adult health in her medical practice.
As founder of Sierra Nevada Holistic Services, LLC, Andrea’s vision is to create a holistic wellness center based in prevention and managed in a treatment team environment, with the patient having final say. Through a more health-integrated lifestyle, patients are encouraged and enabled to live a life of wellness within their definition and abilities.
