In My Heart with Heather Thomson
Andrea is a life coach and author of “Stop Sweating and Start Talking: How to Make Sex Chats with Your Kids Easier Than You Think. A parental guide to that “sex talk” time. Andrea’s work as a life coach focuses on supporting women interested in trading-in feelings of overwhelm for confidence and contentment. She worked for decades in public health, initially in direct care and then as a research consultant to impact programs and policy. After exploring her own inner conflict that resulted from the competing demands of a fast-paced corporate culture and life outside of the office, she stepped away from her career to evaluate her priorities and focus on what matters most to her: family, interpersonal connections, and living authentically. This led to her work as a coach. Andrea holds MSW and MPH degrees from the University of Michigan. Now an empty nester, she resides in Massachusetts with her husband and dog.
