Hi everyone.  I’m Andrea, and I’m a Pediatric Pulmonologist in Indianapolis.  I was born and raised in Washington state–the eastern side most people don’t know about.  I graduated from high school in Spokane and left to go to upstate New York for university, then headed to western Pennsylvania (Go Pens!) for medical school.  In 1996, I started my pediatric residency in Indiana and I’ve been a Hoosier ever since.

My parents owned a trailer; my dad lived in it while building roads in remote areas of eastern Washington, northern Idaho and western Montana.  I have great memories of picking huckleberries and learning to ride a dirtbike while at a campground.  And it wasn’t just trailers: I loved sleeping in tents as well.  One of my favorite vacations was tent camping my way from Spokane to Washington, D.C. with my college friends Mike and Brian.  We had a blast in Yellowstone and many other places along the way.

But, tent camping is not so fun when you’re middle aged.  So, in 2015 I bought my first trailer, pictured above in Charlestown State Park (southern Indiana), and my first Superduty truck, an F-250 I named Bruce.  I’ve been enjoying RVing ever since.  Bruce has been replaced by an F-350, Rory, and I now have a fifth wheel, which is much easier to tow.
