Andria’s Story

I’ve always been a ‘people person’ and love to see people grow and develop, be it personal or professional. A few years after college, I landed in the growing field of Training and Development and discovered my passion. A graduate education gave me the skills and knowledge to launch into a career covering every aspect of leadership development and talent management, in a wide variety of industries and countries.

Twenty years in this profession has taught me that success for any organization begins and ends with its leadership. Strong leaders propel companies to success, while poor leaders drive people and results into the ground. My work is focused on leaders because they have the greatest impact on the largest number of the people and the overall success of the companies they lead. I find it highly rewarding to work with leaders to enhance their leadership abilities and support the growth of those they lead, creating a culture where people and business results thrive.

You’ll find that my key values are to stay focused on what I do best, to deliver value, live with integrity and compassion and to display my sense of humor. A native of California, I have lived on both coasts and several states in between. I fell in love with San Diego in college and am blessed to reside with my family in beautiful North County San Diego, where we enjoy the beach, camping, and checking out new bookstores and taco stands.
