Andi has been in the Natural Products Industry since 1982, having worked in retail, wholesale distribution, and brokerage. For 15 years Andi was with United Natural Foods (UNFI) during which time she held the positions of: Director of Purchasing, Vice President of Purchasing and Vice President of Sales and Marketing. She also served on UNFI’s Board of Directors as the company went public.
Upon leaving UNFI, Andi held the position of President of Mitzvah Marketing, prior to the acquisition of the company by Presence Marketing in 2007. Upon joining the Presence team, Andi held the position of Regional Vice-President in the Pacific Northwest prior to accepting the role of National Director of Brand Management.
Andi currently resides in Seattle, Washington with her 4lb Yorkie “Ricky Bobby” where she enjoys hiking, gardening, outdoor concerts and trying to perfect her skills in golf and playing the banjo. Trying is really the optimal word as skill is rarely used when describing Andi’s golf or banjo capabilities.
Andi continues to have a passion for the Natural Products Industry as it has provided her the ability to combine her love of food, commitment to health and the sustainability of the environment in her daily job and life.
