Hi, I am Andrea Sanchez. I was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM and now I currently live in Houston, TX with my family. Even though I love me some New Mexican food, the big city and love for sports drew me to this area. I absolutely love to travel and hope to hit some bucket list international spots soon. On the weekends you will find me reading, trying to do some craft I saw a video of or driving my kids around town because lets admit it, it is their world and we just live in it. I have gone through some struggles in life and now that I have gotten through those times I have such a willing desire to help others. I am so happy to be apart of this amazing team and help families in a stressful time of year.
