    Andi is thrilled to be part of the FRC, helping students and workforce participants achieve educational and economic success. She’s a proud Strengthening Working Families - LA Fellows Workforce alum, and appreciates the FRC’s holistic approach. Andi's son is leaving for college and it's bittersweet... she and her husband will have the whole house to themselves again. Is that so terrible?
