The daughter of Robert and Patricia Winegar, Andrea was born in Baltimore, MD and moved to Point Pleasant as a young girl.  She went through the Point Pleasant Borough School System and earned her nursing degree from Ocean County College.  Andrea went on to work for and retire from Brick Hospital/Ocean Medical Center.
