Andrew graduated with a BBA in Marketing from James Madison University. But what Andrew takes most pride in is his teaching.
"It's not what I have achieved, but what I can get my students to achieve that drives me. And to have such an impact on so many people in so many different ways is what makes this profession so worthwhile."
