Andi Siegmund and her husband, Dave, have a First and Second Grader at St. Bernadette. The family moved to the NOVA area almost 6 years ago from their lifelong home of Los Angeles and enjoy experiencing actual seasons (and fireflies!) Andi has been a room parent and, most recently, served on the board as the K-2 Grade Representative. She loves to cook quasi-gourmet meals, seek out hole-in- the-wall restaurants, and do spicy food challenges. Andi enjoys going to concerts by herself, getting crafty, peace and quiet (read: naps), organizing (anything), and can play a mean game of ping-pong. She works full-time writing Federal aviation security policy and is excited for this year’s PTO. Her goal is to get everyone involved!

David is excited to serve the PTO and the school. His priority for this opportunity, besides not losing any money, is to encourage greater PTO participation.

I was born and raised in Northern Virginia, attending St. Ambrose Catholic School in Annandale, and Paul VI High School in Fairfax. While at Paul VI, I was on the Varsity Softball and Swim Teams. I coached CYO basketball for the St. Ambrose 5th-8th grade girls teams and my neighborhood swim team.
I recently graduated from Radford University, where I received my B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Psychology. I am planning on pursuing a Master’s degree in Gifted Education in the near future. At Radford, I served as an executive officer of the Alpha Beta Zeta chapter of Alpha Phi Omega Community Service Fraternity. I was also the Operations Team Leader for Student Life. I recently taught shotgun and rifle merit badges at Camp Ottari Boy Scout Camp.
I love to read, make cornhole boards, play sports, spend time with family, and am an enthusiastic Redskins fan.
