2. Life Story/About You
Hi! My name is Andrea Mayer and I have been at CSP since 2015! I completed my bachelor of science degree in marketing and business education at the University of Wisconsin Stout and my master of arts degree in higher education at the University of St. Thomas. Prior to working in higher education I taught high school and worked as an account manager for a floorplan finance company.

3. What do you like to do outside of work?
I have a young and active family that keeps me busy! I like to be outside, starting (and sometimes finishing) art projects, gardening, and spending time with friends and family.

4. What did you want to be growing up?
At a young age I wanted to be a teacher. In high school I wanted to be a graphic designer, but had a co-op experience that I didn’t like so changed my mind!

5. Favorite restaurant/coffee shop near CSP?
Yellowbird, Yum!, On’s Kitchen, Colossal Café, Buffalo Wild Wings (and anything Esther orders via Door Dash!)

6. If you could give one piece of advice to students, what would it be?
Believe in yourself. You have achieved so much and will continue to learn, grow, and achieve during your time at CSP!
