Dr. Andrea grew up in the village of New Norway, Alberta. She was first introduced to chiropractic when her parents began to bring her for wellness treatments at age 10. She was very active in sports and dance throughout her teenage years, and always felt that chiropractic care was very helpful in keeping her in top form.
While completing a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Dr. Andrea played college basketball at the Augustana Faculty of the U of A. She graduated from Augustana with honors, and decided to pursue a career in chiropractic at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY. While in the Doctor of Chiropractic program, she also enrolled in a master’s program in clinical nutrition, which she felt was an important adjunct to her chiropractic training. She graduated with honors from both of these programs in 2011, and returned to Alberta to work in a clinic in Cochrane for a year before purchasing Anders Victoria Family Chiropractic. She is very excited to be serving the Red Deer community and spreading chiropractic to even more people.
In her spare time, Dr. Andrea enjoys playing basketball and volleyball, hiking and camping, reading and writing, and playing the violin, piano, and guitar.
