Founder of Lead With Harmony
Andrea works primarily with small business owners and team leaders at larger organizations to support them in achieving their business growth, leadership development, and team-building goals. As an MBA, business consultant, and certified professional coach, Andrea has partnered with leaders and their organizations - from small business owners to Fortune 500’s - for over 15 years to cultivate high-performance teams and support strategic change and growth initiatives. She enjoys championing mission-driven individuals to pioneer their own unique leadership style grounded in a strong sense of values and purpose that consistently empowers those they lead.
When Andrea is not working with her business clients, you will often find her writing, singing, or playing music, life-long gifts that have helped her understand her own core values of self-expression, creativity, joy, and connection through story and art.
"I love to champion women to exceed their leadership goals because I believe the world gets better as more women step up to own their share of the authority that influences our communities, organizations, and world."
"Even unwanted outcomes can bring opportunity.”

"Practice what you preach, even in small inner circles. What happens behind closed doors is probably the most telling sign of how a leader or business owner is truly contributing to, or standing up against, discrimination. Be mindful of what you say and do, how you deal with the biased and hurtful comments and actions of others, and what you are willing to accept as a social norm."
"It is critical to reconcile the expectations of every relevant leader and get very clear on what your business needs are in a candidate before the hiring process begins. Once you have that, you can objectively look at a candidate’s past results and experience, as well as using assessments and other tools that can help you make the least biased, most evidence-based decision."
"The biggest red flag for any business decision is a decrease in the bottom line. If a company invests in ways to scale its operations, it should be to meet an increase in demand and a corresponding increase in sales. If the cost to scale is greater than the forecasted revenue, the ROI on the investment won't be realized."
"When protecting the status quo becomes more risky than change, it's time to change the status quo. ”

"I have been hesitant in the past to work with a coach and Andrea made the process easy.

I can’t wait to continue working with Andrea to further our exploration of my business and my mindset for the future. This has been an amazing experience!"
