About Andrea:

Andrea Neumayer is the Assistant Executive Director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lewis Clark Valley.  Andrea has been with the Club since 2009.  She began as a Youth Development Professional at the Clarkston Club and worked there for two years before moving to the Lewiston Club in 2011 as their full-time Program Director.  In 2013, she was promoted to the Lewiston Unit Director, and officially became the organization’s Director of Operations in 2015.  Currently, she serves as the organization’s Assistant Executive Director.  Andrea was the 2010 Clarkston Staff of the Year and the 2012 and 2016 Management Staff of the Year.  She also represents our organization on the national level, serving on the Board of Directors for The Professional Association, the national voice of all Boys & Girls Club professionals throughout the Movement.

 

Andrea is originally from Pomeroy, Washington, where she lived the first 18 years of her life.  She graduated from Lewis Clark State College in 2009 with her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  After substitute teaching and working at the Clarkston Club for two years, she decided that she never wanted to leave the Club, and that her calling wasn’t to be confined to a classroom of kids, but to be involved with kids long-term as they grow up.  She has a passion for working with kids of all ages, as well as being involved in the Lewis Clark Valley.  She was married in 2016 and is planning a long future of continuing to serve the youth in our community.
