Ande’s work in the legal field started in the mail room at a previous law firm. In a short period of time her way into a legal assistant position in the garnishment department. She was there for a little over a year, and though she learned a lot, decided to make a change.
Through family friends she heard of Smith Jadin Johnson. It was not the line of work she had been in previously, but specifically their position within insurance law interested her. Representing the insured and helping them through what can be a difficult, confusing, and stressful situation is one of many reasons why she loves working at SJJ. After having been part of this team for 5 years, she cannot imagine being anywhere else.
Outside of SJJ, Ande also coaches part time at gym called Alchemy 365 where her passion for fitness comes alive. She also loves taking her dog Lilly for walks, cooking, hanging out with friends, and being outside as much as possible – we only get a few warm months in MN!
