Island Girl Since:

July 2005

Originally Hails From:


After making friends with several Caribbean people during college, Andrea’s love of roti, rum, and soca led to her being dubbed an honorary Trini. An American in real life, she made her move to one of the Caribbean islands where she could live without dealing with immigration laws – the U.S. Virgin Islands. She admittedly moved with stars in her eyes, but after more than a decade of island life during which she got married, built a home, and had two kids, those stars haven’t dimmed. As if living on a gorgeous island isn’t sweet enough, her passion doubles as her profession. She’s edited and written for several travel, wedding, and lifestyle/architecture magazines, and some of her travel writing clients include MasterCard and jetBlue.
