Her first book, Stronger on the Other Side: The Power to Choose, is about the befores and afters of Andrea’s life. After sinking so low she contemplated ending her life, she takes you along the story of how she rebuilt her life, rising from the ashes and finding power in her voice.

From watching her home burn down before her eyes to a complex childhood that saw her grapple with the role of a woman which society and her family urged her to play, each barrier on Andrea’s journey brought growth – and her voice got louder in the process.

If you’ve experienced doubt, trauma, grief, or simply find yourself in a complex moment of transition, Andrea’s story will move you – and will help you contemplate your own journey to achieving strength on the other side of hardship.
