Meet Mrs. Missouri 2009, Andrea Robertson

Andrea was born and raised in St Charles, Missouri where she grew up with her parents and three older brothers. She credits her brothers with introducing her to the world of athletics and teaching her to be strong, focused, and competitive.  As a young girl, she played almost every sport imaginable and continued to compete in athletics throughout high school.  She went on to play collegiate soccer at the University of Missouri. Because of Title IX, the University of Missouri started a womenís soccer team program in 1996, and she was a member of the inaugural team serving as team captain for two years. Andrea graduated from MU with a B.S. in biology and worked as a research biologist for a major pharmaceutical company. Soon after college Andrea got engaged to her high school sweetheart, Ryan, and they were married in August of 2000. Ryan was a professional basketball player and played one year in the NBA for the Sacramento Kings. He then played in the European Basketball League, and Andrea and Ryan lived in Holland, Greece and France and experienced all the culture and excitement of life overseas.

After the birth of their daughter Kylie, they moved back to America, much to the delight of the grandparents! Andrea is now a stay at home mom to their four-year old daughter Kylie and two year-old son JD and works as a commercial/lifestyle model. Andreaís passion for athletics is very much alive as she is a competitive tri-athlete and has competed in more than 50 triathlons, the longest of which was a half ironman.  She is a member of the St Louis Triathlon Club and TrismartUSA triathlon racing team. Andrea also enjoys helping her church as part of the leadership team of Cross Training Sports Ministry, which plans and organizes sports events for children.  Andrea and Ryan coach their daughterís basketball and soccer teams and proudly proclaim that both children have a smooth follow through, though less than accurate shooting at this time!

Andrea has chosen Fit for Life as her platform and wants to spread her message that an active lifestyle can have a positive impact on your family. Andrea also serves as an ambassador for the Womenís Sports Foundation. This foundation focuses on enhancing the lives of women and girls through sport and physical activity.  To learn more about and support the Womenís Sports Foundation please visit www.womenssportsfoundation.com.
