Ande has been involved with Students Shoulder to Shoulder since the beginning! She attended the first course in Ladakh, India in 2007, partnering with the dZi Foundation to work shoulder to shoulder with locals on three service projects. Raised in the Vail Valley, Ande graduated from Vail Mountain School in 2009. Planning on Veterinary School, she headed to Texas Christian University where she graduated in 2013 with her Bachelor of Arts in History instead. She then moved back home to work for Vail Resorts in the Human Resources department at Beaver Creek. After a year, Ande was promoted to the Recruiting department at the then-newly-acquired Park City Resort. She lived and worked in Salt Lake City for four years, and completed over 300 hours of community service with a local organization. During this time, Ande also served on the Board of Directors for SStS, focusing primarily on fellow Shoulder to Shoulder alumni engagement projects. In 2019, Ande was hired on as the Director of Admissions for Students Shoulder to Shoulder, and is beyond thrilled to be in the role!
