Under Andrea’s leadership, the development department became an office for institutional advancement to meet the growing needs of the School, especially after successfully completing a $20 million capital effort. Notably, Andrea’s leveraging of the capital effort led to collaboration throughout the School community as the annual campaign effort became a school-wide initiative with hundreds of volunteers who helped to grow the campaign from $600,000 to $1.65 M within a three-year time-frame and the endowment by $10 M.
