Andrea Pineda, our resident “crazy Colombian”, is the Academics Coordinator for Andson. She works for us part-time, so she doesn’t spend a lot of time at the office, but that doesn’t make her any less integral to our operations! A typical day for her is spent solving staffing needs, following up on program performance, and visiting sites.
Before joining Andson, Andrea worked for The Nevada Cancer Institute, Galleria at Sunset Mall and BELFOR Property Restoration. Here, she hopes to make people's life a little bit better, from homework help for our students to additional income for our tutoring staff.
Born and raised in Cali, Colombia, Andrea completed her BA in Business Management at ICESI University, Cali-Colombia and received her graduate certificate in International Cooperation and Project Management for Development from Universidad Externado de Colombia, Bogota-Colombia. She moved to Las Vegas in 2006, and the town has been good to her. She feels lucky to call it home.
Andrea and Rob, her husband of 12 years, are the proud parents of 2 year-old Olivia, who is fluent in Spanglish and completed their little family after a successful IVF. They also share two spoiled and sassy Chihuahuas named Coco and Gigi, whom Olivia loves teasing! Rob was born in Pensacola, Florida, but has been living in Las Vegas since he was 10, so he’s practically a native. He is also a big Green Bay Packers fan!
She doesn’t have much down time due to having a toddler, but when Olivia finally goes to bed, Andrea enjoys to read. Her advice is to find peace in the small and simple things, then smile back!
