Dr. Andrea is passionate about serving families through chiropractic. Dr. Andrea grew up seeing a chiropractor with her mom after suffering a back injury while being a competitive swimmer. However, it wasn’t until chiropractic school that she understood the power of a chiropractic adjustment for more than just pain. It was there she learned about chiropractic care for newborns and young children as well as pregnant moms. This deeply resonated with Dr. Andrea as being a mom had always been a life-long dream of hers. Now, after having two children of her own, her passion for helping moms create healthy families has grown on an even more personal level.
Dr. Andrea believes that every pregnant mom should be empowered to know that they are more than capable to have a healthy pregnancy and the birth that they desire! She also believes that every child should be checked at birth and beyond to be allowed to grow and thrive the way they were intended!
After graduating with a bachelor in science from Texas A&M University, Dr. Andrea chose to attend Parker University (formerly Parker College of Chiropractic) in Dallas, TX to pursue her doctorate degree. It was in her first trimester philosophy class where she realized that her passion was to have a family focused practice filled with pregnant moms and children. Through her years at Parker, Dr. Andrea dove into learning all she could about prenatal and pediatric care as well as taking multiple adjusting specific courses outside of normal classroom hours.
After graduation, Dr. Andrea along with her husband Jeff and their new baby, at the time, Camryn decided to move to Wisconsin where Dr. Andrea is originally from. In 2010, Dr. Andrea opened Café of Life Chiropractic-Milwaukee which focused on full family care with an emphasis towards children and pregnant mommas.
In 2015, Dr. Andrea joined the River Shores Chiropractic team. She has had a life-long dream to create a family practice with another mom-chiropractor. She has envisioned a place in the community that can be a hub of learning and hope for families. She has found that here with Dr. Krysti Wick and the River Shores Chiropractic team.
