Hi, my name is Andrea and I am married with two girls. I have always been active even as a child. I enjoy water skiing, snow skiing, paddle boarding, hiking with my family and pups.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 38, this had a huge impact on my life. I quit going to the gym, I was afraid my blood sugars would go low etc. My boyfriend (now husband) had to coax me back into the gym. I slowly got back into it and figured out how to manage my blood sugars and diet. I eventually hired a coach myself and went on to compete in my first ever Figure and Bikini competition and currently training for more. It was the best decision I ever made. I would love to pass my knowledge on to others and help others reach their goals and overcome their fears. That is why I started Raise the Bar Fitness and Nutrition to reach out to others who are trying to become the best version of themselves.
