About


Hello, I’m Andrea Weckerle, and I’m glad you’re here!

After living in four countries and nine U.S. states, and meeting people from all different kinds of backgrounds, I’ve learned the true definition of a successful life: Close and supportive relationships, a lifestyle that fosters physical and emotional wellbeing, and a commitment to helping make the world a better place. The hashtag for my personal philosophy can be described as #ReadyLiving.
