Andra graduated from San Francisco State University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and an emphasis in Human Movement Studies. In 2000, Andra graduated from Chapman University with a Master of Physical Therapy degree and a minor specialization in pediatrics.
For the last 20 years, Andra has worked in a variety of clinical settings. She began her career at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center as an in-patient physical therapist, providing care to post-op patients, ICU patients, and general medical patients. Within a year, she moved to outpatient, orthopedic physical therapy. While working in the outpatient setting, Andra provided physical therapy services for orthopedic patients, supervised students, and provided presentations to the public on congestive heart failure.
Almost 5 years later, Andra began working at a dynamic outpatient, pediatric clinic: Cornerstone Therapies. While there, she was able to use NDT handling techniques to assist children as they learned to roll, sit, crawl, walk and eventually run.
Andra is the President & CEO of STAC Physical Therapy which owns and operates a number of high-end, outpatient physical therapy clinics throughout the state of California.
When she is not working, Andra loves spending time with her husband and 3 boys. On the weekends she can often be found on a pool deck watching her boys swim competitively or play water polo. She also loves running anywhere from 5k’s to marathons!
