Andrew believes this very quote is something he helps the LiveWell members live by. He intends on helping them improve their health which certainly allows for a greater quality of life. 

Outside of work Andrew can be found with family and friends, tending to yardwork or in the gym exercising himself. He enjoys listening to podcasts in his free time or throughout the day including How I Built This and Wisdom from the Top with Guy Raz, as well as Barbell Medicine. 

Andrew is responsible for the continued growth and development at LiveWell Health. As an organization with its sights set on expansion in order to alter the healthcare landscape for aging populations it is imperative that LiveWell continues developing its processes as well as cultivating relationships within the community. Andrew leads the charge on updating exercise recommendations through continued research and learning. 

Andrew believes his undergraduate degree in Exercise Physiology and graduate degree in Gerontology are the perfect combination for progressing the health of this population. A complete understanding of the aging process and much of the exercise prescription that goes with it allows our members to live happier and healthier no matter what chronic condition they are living with. 

Those who work in the field of senior care must embody empathy, passion, patience and integrity which Andrew believes was instilled in him at an early age by his family. Andrew aspires to continue pushing this movement forward and ensuring exercise is on the care plan of every individual over the age of 65 in the future.
