Andrew has been interested in physical fitness and wellness since he was a child. When he was in grade school he made sure his homework was done first thing so that he could go outside and play in the park next to his house. His love of sports and fitness carried through his Emmaus High School years where he played on the football team and excelled on the Marine Youth Physical Fitness team. During his senior year in 2004, he was the overall individual male champion at the National High School Marine Fitness Competition held in San Diego, California. He enjoyed those experiences so much that he decided teaching physical education and health would be a great career, as well as an excellent way to impart those interests to the young people in his community.
Andrew earned a Bachelor of Health and Physical Education degree at East Stroudsburg University in 2008, and a Master of Health and Physical Education degree in 2013. In the summer, he supervises the playground program for the Allentown Parks and Recreation Department. He has also been the assistant coach for the Emmaus High School Marine Youth Physical Fitness Team since 2008.
At home, Andrew enjoys playing with his son. He loves watching him grow and being a good father and role model to him. When he’s not playing with his boy, Andrew loves any kind of exercise, because working out is where he feels most comfortable. He’s a huge fan of the Dallas Cowboys even though he tends to catch a lot of grief for that.
