Andrea’s responsibilities as Business Outreach Manager include inputting, cleaning, and analyzing data including commercial rents, commercial vacancies, merchant products and locations, and consumer demographics in key business corridors. Having this information readily available in an organized database is invaluable to small business owners, giving them access to information that helps them make business decisions.
Andrea recently graduated from UC Berkeley, receiving her B.S in Environmental Economics and Policy, and a minor in Geospatial Information Science and Technology. Her areas of interest are affordable housing and tenants’ rights, as well as internal labor migration theory, specifically rural to urban migration. She is excited to utilize the skills that she developed throughout her education in a meaningful and impactful way while at Main Street Launch.
