She has written/contributed to 28 books, 450 case studies and company profiles, 73 conference reports, 32 best practices reports, 18 industry studies, four white papers, two training manuals and countless articles. She wrote 30 case studies of excellent companies for best-selling author Tom Peters, which he used in his books Liberation Management, The Tom Peters Seminar and On Achieving Excellence newsletter. Other clients include McKinsey & Company, the MIT Sloan School of Management, Prentice Hall, McGraw-Hill, Forrester Research, Wharton, Tuck, the University of Michigan, and the University of Southern California.

Over the years of conducting company interviews and extensive searches of secondary sources, Andrea developed a 12,000-record database of company examples, best practices, and innovator profiles. Extending that work, she was hired by the MIT Sloan School of Management to identify and describe leading-edge companies for the Interesting Organizations Database, for the eBusiness Process Handbook, and for executive education courses.

Andrea received her Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with a 4.0/4.0 grade point average. Her career began as GLIS Librarian at IBM, where she provided research support for new product development, corporate acquisitions and competitor analysis. Next, Andrea was a research specialist at CareerTrack Seminars, Inc., providing research and curriculum development for the company's management training programs worldwide. While she worked there, CareerTrack was the 10th fastest-growing, privately-held company in the U.S., and its seminars were attended by over 400,000 people annually.

Andrea's international clients include the Norwegian Center for Leadership Development, the French Ministry of Education, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD). She has conducted case studies of companies in Europe, South America and Asia. She is fluent in Czech and has lived in Prague, Cape Town and Zurich. In 2003, she completed a month-long volunteer assignment in Australia.

Andrea's awards include the Philip Morris Scholarship ($11,400), Ray C. Janeway Scholarship ($2000), University of Texas College Scholar, and membership in Mensa, Phi Beta Kappa, and Who's Who in America.
