Andrea is in her Junior year at San Bernardino Valley College in California studying Heavy/Medium Duty Diesel Technology. She changed her life from household employment to an automotive career, and her passion is diesel technology. She inherited a 1981 Prevost 40 feet bus with a Detroit Diesel engine. Her education thus far has provided her with self-esteem and skills to begin transforming the bus from a non-running relic and into a running motor home. Andrea has held previous administrative positions with vehicle dealerships, and was an estate manager for three households in Beverly Hills, CA. Her goal is to receive the ASE Certified Master Diesel Technician and gain employment in the diesel industry. Andrea’s hometown is Loma Linda, California. The scholarship was sponsored by Aisin Group.
