Resume: Andrea's Background Experience
Prior to a career as a massage therapist, Andrea was not a stranger to volunteering and fundraising. As a former bank employee, she was a member of the department's queue board team. She participated in various events such as Race for the Cure, MS Walk, and AIDS Walk. While raising monies for each of these events, she simultaneously found a way to collect donations for school supplies for a public school in Jersey City, NJ. Her son was attending this school and the budget didn't cover most of the supplies needed for the children in her son's Pre-k class. As a massage therapist, she continues to find creative ways to fundraise and/or volunteer her time with mostly the use of her own monies.
She is honored to have been a part of the Oncology Massage Research Project at UMDNJ in Newark, NJ. This pilot research project ran for six weeks from June through July 2012. Along with five other Massage Therapists, she offered her services giving fifteen minute massages to cancer outpatients receiving either chemotherapy or radiation treatments. She strongly believe in giving back by volunteering throughout the year. She continues to participate at various local charitable events such as Bike MS and NY Avon Breast Cancer Walk.
She is also proud to have been featured in the Virginia Harkness Sawtelle Department of Radiation Oncology September 2013 issue at HUMC Mountainside hospital.
