Television News Reporter
Based in Washington D.C. for most of her career as a television news reporter, Andrea covered major news events for Al Jazeera English, the Pentagon Channel, the Seven Network and Reuters, including the US Presidential Election, the Virginia Tech campus shooting and Hurricane Katrina. Andrea has also filed reports for SBS World News and currently appears on Sky News Australia and Sky Business News as a guest commentator.
International Aid Worker
Driven by a passion for human rights, Andrea moved into the international non-profit arena in 2008 as a media officer for International Relief & Development based in Washington D.C. Her role was to support programs to re-build Iraq, Afghanistan and Georgia by gathering stories from the frontline. Andrea's reports assisted in the funding of aid programs for locals while also generating exposure to grassroots supporters, connecting those on the ground to those in high levels of office.
As Communication Director for the Save Darfur Coalition - the largest grassroots advocacy movement in the world, Andrea led efforts to co-ordinate media coverage, partnerships and organisational branding to support campaign objectives. Among other initiatives, Andrea was behind an unprecedented outreach event between the State Department and the Sudan advocacy movement. In a live, online broadcast from the White House, the U.S. Special Envoy to Sudan answered questions from activists about the strategy to bring peace to the region.
