Administrative Assistant

Andrea Womack

I am a native of Richmond ,Virginia. I moved to Texas after being stationed with my family in Kansas and Germany. I have 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. I have played and enjoyed sports as long as I can remember. My family has been involved in or coaching and playing football, soccer, softball, golf, baseball, track and basketball.

I have previously served as a Youth Pastor. God has truly given me a love for students (Pre and post High School). My passion for FCA grew out of many relationships with educators and the impact that they have on our students. It is so exciting to be an "ear" or an "encouraging voice" in a sea of negativity. I am looking forward to the journey in FCA Heart of Texas West area. Home to the largest Military Base in the World.
