Andrea has experience assisting public and private sector clients in P3 infrastructure development projects, property and portfolio acquisitions, and financing transactions for acquisitions and development projects on behalf of developers, owners, portfolio managers and financial institutions.

Skillfully managing cross-functional project teams to advance her clients’ objectives is one of Andrea’s singular strengths.

Her prior investing experience includes analyzing and underwriting more than $1 billion in debt and equity financing of high profile commercial real estate transactions.

Andrea has supported both private and public sector clients in various stages of infrastructure development projects. This includes providing support for XpressWest, the nation’s first federally approved and permitted high-speed passenger rail service between Las Vegas and Southern California, and coordinating development of a $12 billion horizontal infrastructure plan on behalf of the RTC of Southern Nevada.

Andrea’s work in the P3 sector has included supporting planning, documentation and project management for a regional broadband project, as well as extensive work on the federal Military Housing Privatization Initiative. Andrea’s prior experience in the federal real property sector includes supporting a project team driving a NASA facility’s re-use of an adjoining decommissioned naval air station, supporting EPA’s Superfund program and other environmental initiatives.
