Andrew is a fairly new member of GRYP. Having played on GRYP’s softball league last year, he learned about the many benefits of being a GRYP member and decided to join.

When Andrew’s not busy with classes at Alvernia, he enjoys the outdoors, going to new restaurants, attending Fightin Phils and Reading Royals games, spending time with coworkers and attending events in West Reading. He is also heavily involved in the Keystone Military Families events, particularly the Zumba event to raise money for our troops and their families.

With various new businesses as well as a plethora of community service organizations, now is a perfect time to be a young professional in the Greater Reading Area.”

Most meaningful achievements:
Andrew’s most meaningful achievement is being accepted into the Philadelphia Police Academy.

Tips to other young professionals:
“First and foremost, respect those you work with. It’s important to treat everyone equally. You never know who you may be speaking with. Eye contact and a firm handshake are also important.”
