Andre was born in Yakima, WA but spent a majority of his young life in Walla Walla, WA. Following high school, he spent a number of years in Seattle working and attending college. He later left Washington to pursue a job opportunity in Louisville, KY, but eventually returned home to the Pacific Northwest, ending up in the Tri-Cities. There he completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Washington State University. He first encountered Vision Therapy through his wife, Emilly, and her work with developmentally delayed children. He is very fascinated with the brain and especially neuroplasticity, which is foundational to Vision Therapy approaches. He enjoys helping others to improve their lives while continuing to learn and grow personally. Andre has a wide range of hobbies that include tennis, chess, working on cars, and writing.
