About Us

Meet Andria.

Andria - founder of Slow Coast Spa

Andria is an APRN, CNP and has devoted 15 years to unparalleled high standards in patient care at two highly regarded academic institutions; Stanford and Mayo Clinic. She has worked all 15 years in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

Andria has been fortunate to join the efforts of Knock Foundation, Medical Outreach of America, and Flying Doctors of America in their international work to aid under-served communities. She has also mentored Team in Training marathon runners, raising awareness and funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Raised on the northern coast of California, Andria’s love for the outdoors is her signature trait. An avid water girl and backpacker she has traveled to many remote nooks in the world. Including the Himalayans in Nepal, Andes Mountain range in Peru, and the glaciers at the peak of Mt Kilimanjaro, Africa. To the remote Rock Islands of Palau, the deep waters of the Virgin Islands, Costa Rica and Honduras (Roatan). She has surfed endless sunrises and sunsets in Hawaii and was granted a true sense of discovery during her three month stay on Molokai Island (where she spear fished for food, slept on the beach, and lived on two changes of clothes). She embraces life with deep gratitude for the gift of “today.”

Andria chose the name Slow Coast Spa as a nod to a quiet 50 mile stretch of the Pacific Coast line where mountains meet ocean and time stands still. Crickets are the curfew, stars outshine street lights, main roads are peppered with abundant fruit and vegetable stands, waves are survived only by the talented, the salty breeze coats sun kissed skin, and the sunset hugs this expansive edge of forever.

Andria is happily married with two young boys and a red Labrador retriever. Together, they enjoy their country life in the rolling hills on the outskirts of Rochester, Minnesota.

Andria maintains a high level of integrity and interest in ensuring her clients are well taken care of and satisfied with their outcomes. Her warm and welcoming personality, combined with her meticulous nature, distinguishes her as a talented Nurse Practitioner.
