Get to Know Dr. Andrea Loeffert

Q: What is your connection to our mission?

A: I have always had a “soft spot” for kids with autism. Through my career I have seen the benefits of appropriate services for kids with autism, but I have also seen the struggles people go through to get those services. I look forward to the opportunity to have a role in lessening those struggles.

Q: Why do you love helping children?

A: Kids are the best. They’re so honest and funny. It does truly take a village to raise a child to their fullest potential of health and happiness. It’s an honor to help children reach that potential.

Q: What are your hobbies?

A: Gardening, hiking, spending time with my husband, kids and dog.

Q: What (or who) inspires you?

A: My family inspires me. Seeing children achieve and have success inspires me.

Q: Tell us about your family. Any children? What about pets?

A: I am married to my husband and we have 2 daughters. We have a dog who is spoiled and who we love very much.
