"Andrea is one of the most inspiring health leaders and coaches in VT. She led an engaging Rise to 5k program with live training videos to prep for the virtual 5k where over 300 Vermonters participated. Each video had 150-600 views likely due to her engaging and positive attitude. She will make you smile and feel proud all the way through your work with her!" -Marissa Parisi, Executive Director, RiseVT
"Andrea is an inspirational and vital component to the success of the UCS Superhero 5K. In its 3rd year, now virtual, she continues to motivate and empower participants. Her knowledge and content provided on a weekly basis is thorough and motivating. It is a pleasure to work with Andrea; she truly is a “wonder woman.” -Heidi French, Director of Community Relations & Development, United Counseling Service
" I wanted to drop you a quick note of thanks for all the training plans you have put together so far for the PCC 5k crew. 4 weeks ago, I really didn’t believe I would be able to run for 6min straight. My max at that point had been 1.5min. Your plan is challenging but attainable, and it’s really helping me build confidence and joy in movement. Thanks so much and I look forward to tackling the 7-, 8-, and 10-minute intervals in week 5!" - SarahG
