Andrea Hodgins is happy to join Park Academy’s team as an accountant. Andrea received her accounting degree from Portland State University School of Business and has spent much of her career working as an accountant in the legal and manufacturing fields. She started her career as co-administrator for a legal defense consortium in downtown Portland and, while taking evening classes to complete her accounting degree, transitioned to accounting for the consortium and handling their contact with the State of Oregon. After several years in the legal field, she joined Ruby Jewel Ice Cream Company, where she enjoyed learning about accounting for a manufacturing company (and also enjoyed delicious ice cream!). Her latest position was as Senior Accountant at Olympia Provisions, another local favorite and also very tasty!
As a mother of a young child with dyslexia, Andrea felt inspired to join Park Academy and merge her accounting experience with her passion for supporting children with dyslexia. Andrea has seen first-hand the difference that proper support makes in a child’s life and the rich rewards of seeing a child realize their potential and feel confident in themselves. Andrea is thrilled to join Park Academy and assist the school in fulfilling its mission.
Andrea is originally from Canada and, in typical Canadian fashion, loves skiing, cabins surrounded by snowy forests, and long hikes. She lives in Multnomah County with her husband, son, and adorable lop-eared bunny. In her spare time she enjoys fishing, foraging for mushrooms, and being creative in the kitchen.
