“I love the complexity of the projects I am involved in at GNU. They require balancing complex issues and numerous moving parts. Making them come together is my job.”

As the Director of Program Management, Andrea is the pivotal resource for stewarding projects through GNU’s process. She is a master of organization, people management, and program solving. While hers role cuts across all of GNU’s projects, she is especially versed in environmental branding, wayfinding science, and signage design for major healthcare institutions and facilities. 

Andrea is an explorer and innovator of navigation programs for medical and civic campuses. Recent assignments include: Alaska Native Tribal Health Organization, San Mateo Medical Center, Maui Health Systems, UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center, and County of Santa Clara.

Andrea is a motivated professional who began her career with GNU over 19 years ago in an administrative role. Her intellectual curiosity and dedication to personal growth have meant a progressive career path at GNU. She skillfully balances her instrumental role in managing projects with her responsibilities as a member of the firm’s Leadership Team.

When I’m not at GNU:
– Hiking Pt. Reyes National Seashore (favorite place on earth)

– Camping & backpacking with family

– Bike riding (ride to work everyday!)
– Gardening (working on massing and composition)
– Reading “A Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R.R. Martin (and awaiting the next release)
