Andrea started swimming with water wings as a little kid before graduating to competitive swimming at age 8. She grew up swimming for Sunnyvale Swim Club and De Anza Cupertino Aquatics. After a long break from competitive swimming, she returned to pool while in graduate school on the east coast and joined Tsunami in 2011 after moving to San Francisco. After swimming with the team for a year, Andrea joined the Tsunami coaching staff. She focuses on sprint workouts and stoke technique, particularly helping newer swimmers establish good habits. She is looking forward to another fun year coaching and representing Tsunami at swim meets!
