Welcome Andrea! County Extension Educator in Boone County


Reminders and alerts for Purdue Extension CD educators.


Andrea grew up on a very traditional farm in southern Indiana. They raised corn, soybeans, and wheat, as well as Angus and Hereford cattle. Her family always had a large garden, which is where Andrea discovered her love of watching plants grow. She was active in 4-H in Dubois County, in addition to several other extracurricular activities. Surprised at how little some of her friends knew about agriculture, and determined to change that, she earned her BS in Agriculture Education and her MS in Curriculum and Instruction from Purdue University.

Some of you may be thinking her name sounds familiar, and you would be correct. After graduating from Purdue, Andrea accepted a position as the 4-H/Youth Extension Educator in Hamilton County. She worked there for almost 6 years before her family moved out of state. Andrea stayed involved in Extension, volunteering as a 4-H leader with her kids’ 4-H clubs.

Fast forward several years and the opportunity arose to move back to Indiana. Andrea, her husband, David, and her two kids, Lauren and Drew, now live on a small farm in the Brownsburg area where they raise hay, cattle, and microgreens, and Andrea can enjoy her own large garden. She is excited to be back with her Extension family!
