Andrea grew up dreaming about being James Bond and always liked the idea of learning Krav Maga. Her husband convinced her to try a class at KMS. She was hooked after her first class and immediately began racking up the training hours with triple classes, ‘quads’, and extra training hours. Andrea became a Phase A (Yellow Belt) certified Krav Maga instructor in September 2017.
Andrea experienced firsthand that training at KMS makes you not only better at self-defense and striking, but a stronger person in all aspects of your life. She learned that she did not have to accept feeling helpless, hopeless, or fearful.
Andrea decided to become an instructor at KMS because she believes every student can have this experience. She wanted to help empower people to conquer and embrace situations that cause them anxiety or unease.
Outside of KMS, you can find Andrea paddleboarding, dancing bachata, snowboarding, as well as being a health food nut, a bookworm, and a beach bum. When she’s not training, teaching, dancing, or paddleboarding, she is the Director of Nursing at an assisted living facility.
