Andrea Mirlenbrink

Hello! My name is Andrea! I am a born and raised Cincinnatian, and I currently live on the West Side with my husband and two young children. I went to UC, so in my heart I will always be a Bearcat! I have a Masters degree in English, and I love to write and teach. I currently teach English at Cincinnati State. In my spare time, I like to read, write, and craft with the occasional television binge watching. I also enjoy doing anything Disney-related with my family!
