Total Volunteer Hours 1st & 2nd Quarter of 2018: 465.88! Andrea has been a volunteer for MarineParents since August 2016 and currently serves as a Group Leader for the Recruit Support Battalions, STC, MRP and PCP and the MOS group. She is also the Team Boot coach.
She resides in East-Central Indiana and works in education at Indiana University East. Andrea has a history of volunteering, having previously been a volunteer swim mom for the 9 years that her Marine was a competitive swimmer. She was delighted to find an opportunity to become involved her son's military career just as she had been in his swim career by volunteering with MarineParents.com.
When Andrea's son was hospitalized during recruit training, she was on the receiving end of a great deal of support from other recruit and Marine family members through the Official Marine Parents Facebook Groups. This outpouring of support ultimately inspired Andrea to volunteer herself, as she wanted to be able to provide that same kind of support to other families navigating the recruit process.
