Andrea Amavisca graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in with a Bachelor’s Degree in political science. Upon graduation, she moved to Sacramento to pursue a career in politics and government. She currently works for the California State Legislature and intends on attending law school in the near future.
Some of Andrea’s fondest childhood memories revolve around music. Her father, a former musician, encouraged her to learn how to play the clarinet when she was in the 5th grade and she fell in love. She was actively involved with band until she reached high school. Music is still an important part of her life and she knows that is a direct result of her band teacher in elementary and middle school. She feels strongly that the arts should be accessible for all students to explore and hopes that Lime Arts will be able to provide that opportunity for students of all backgrounds in the years to come.
