Andrea has been with The Bridge since 2009. She mainly utilises The Bridge Connects services of Your Supports and Getaways.
Andrea has developed genuine friendships with staff who have supported her over the last 10 years. Marissa supports Andrea to access many community attractions and events such as trips to Southland and the city to shop and visit cafes. She has been catching public transport using her electric wheelchair for quite a while now, although at times this can be difficult. Andrea communicates through an electronic device called a Lightwriter. She is a very strong-willed woman and a fantastic advocate for herself.
Andrea lives at home with her dad, Harry, and is looking forward to transitioning to the NDIS, as she is confident the scheme will further support her independence and choices in life.
