Hey there, Andrea Reinertson here!  I am a marketing industry professional with nearly 10 years of experience in the field.  I received a degree in Business and Marketing from Boise State University, and moved to Vancouver shortly after in 2008.  While working at Nordstrom, I learned the value of customer service, and grew my passion for understanding consumer behavior.  In 2011 I moved on to retail marketing at Nike world headquarters, where I got to work on amazing campaigns that grew the women’s business, organized events, and even hear words of wisdom from some of the worlds best athletes.  While at Nike, my family grew from 2 to 4, and it felt time for a shift to another career that would give me the time with them I was craving.  While I am only embarking on my second year of teaching, I have loved getting to work with students and stretching my creativity in a new way.  Moreover, I am super excited about starting the CAPS program, because it will allow me to leverage my experience and business connections in a whole new way.  In my free time, I spend time with my husband, 4 year old daughter, and 2 year old son cooking, playing outdoors, and exploring new places.
