Andy is originally from South Africa and moved to Houston in 1980. She is a graduate of Bellaire High School and The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts degree in magazine journalism, a minor in history and a secondary education certificate for social studies. After 16 years in the classroom as a social studies teacher for middle- and high-school-aged students, Andy made a career change and came to work for The Buzz in 2003. For her first nine years she wore two hats by writing monthly articles as well as working as an account manager. Since 2012 her sole focus has been on the advertising side. In her spare time, she loves to read, take long walks with her mini chihuahua, Priscilla, and dachshund, Bruce Wayne Jr., watch HGTV, crime shows and Masterpiece Theatre, and spend time with her family and cat, Bean Dip. She gets a thrill from watching people leaf through The Buzz and point out those they recognize in it.
