Currently, the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Beulah’s Place, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization providing temporary shelter services to at-risk homeless teen boys and girls, Andi is in the process of locating a permanent facility in which to rescue and house more at-risk teens. She and her husband, Ed, have been married for 17 years. They live with their very spoiled golden retriever, Dusti, in beautiful Central Oregon. Andi and her husband are involved in church activities and enjoy traveling to Andi’s speaking engagements and other places of interest as often as possible.
