Hi! I’m Andrea Andrus, owner of Blue Pineapple LLC. I have over 20 years experience in marketing and advertising including traditional media, social and digital media, nonprofits, fundraising and events.
Some of my favorite projects include helping create the pop-culture convention, Wen-Con, in Wenatchee, WA. I helped launch the Wenatchee Mom Blog, an online supportive gathering place sharing the good, the bad and the funny moments of parenthood. I started Lake Chelan This Week, a weekly dining and events publication, in beautiful Lake Chelan, WA.
I’ve been a volunteer for many nonprofits including Stage Kids Washington Youth Theater publicity manager, Make a Difference Day social media manager, Wenatchee YMCA board member and Washington Elementary PTSA board member and fundraiser. My most noteworthy experience was being the creator and organizer of Wenatchee Valley Coats for Kids. In seven years, we collected and distributed over 5,000 coats to children in North Central Washington.
I was born and raised in Southern Idaho and recently moved back to the area with my husband and daughter. My hobbies include traveling, reading and obsessing over acai bowls. I currently have a black belt in shopping.
