parks, multi-use trails and institutional site planning, her free time is spent gardening at her home in Decatur, volunteering with the Georgia Native Plant Society, hiking and kayaking around the southeast and observing and identifying plants wherever she goes.  Andrea became passionate about plants and ecological landscaping because of her love and concern about the conservation of animals including the furry 4 legged ones AND the ones with more than 4 legs. She received an Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia, an undergraduate degree from Bucknell University and earned a Certificate in Native Plants from the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.
