Andrea oversees the Western Spoke of our Double SNAP Dollars (DSD) program, alongside two other spoke coordinators in the Northwestern and Central/Eastern regions of Montana. She’ll also work on training and onboarding new and existing DSD sites, in addition to providing support through technical assistance, communications, and marketing strategies and materials. Andrea is committed to support DSD project partners in effectively implementing the program in various communities and to improve access to local produce for Montanans.
Andrea earned a Master’s in Health and Human Development from MSU in Bozeman, and successfully completed MSU’s Sustainable Food Systems-focused Dietetic Internship from 2016-2017, where she traveled throughout West/Southwest Montana for 10 months working in the clinical, community, and food services domains of dietetics. Andrea relocated to the Flathead Valley shortly after she became a registered dietitian (RDN) and began working for the Flathead County WIC program, where she provided nutrition education, referrals to community services, and breastfeeding support to low-income families and new mothers.
