About Andrea

Andrea Harvey was a 28 year old who embraced every opportunity

to live life to the fullest, and to improve herself and those around her. She was involved with projects that would have reorganized the school where she worked, bringing valuable lessons learned from highly successful schools abroad. Andrea actively sought out ways to contribute to the lives of others, and did so in her community as a respected high-school math teacher, a promising Masters student, an accomplished musician, artist, gourmet vegan cook, traveler, devoted daughter, loving sister, niece, granddaughter, and kind friend. She was affectionately called a Renaissance Woman by her friends, who speak of her as a person with an open and generous heart, who tolerated nearly all personal failings in others except for prejudice.
