Andrea became a star on the debate team at Laramie High and was recruited to join the University of Kansas Debate Team. During her four years as a member of the University of Kansas team, Andrea traveled across the country, winning numerous awards and qualifying for the National Debate Tournament. Andrea had natural talent at building cases, and her years of experience on both national qualifying teams took her skills to a whole new level of excellence. As Andrea was finishing college, her younger brother passed away. Instead of going back east for law school, she came home to help her parents cope with the loss and attended law school at the University of Wyoming. Andrea graduated from law school in 1991.
