Andrea Schwarz

Program Associate: Suzanne Patterson Building (she/her/hers)

Andrea is a New Jersey native and graduate of the University of Central Florida. She has extensive experience in real estate management, having previously worked as a leasing office manager in multiple dwellings in New Jersey. Andrea is the force behind our operations at the Suzanne Patterson Building – from setting up for classes and activities, managing educational technology, or liaising with visitors and participants. Andrea’s infectious smile and warm welcome create an environment at Suzanne Patterson that is hospitable, friendly, and joyful. Andrea loves to garden, camp, and cook – but is most adept at playing wiffle ball with family and friends. But don’t ask her to watch a scary movie because she has NEVER watched a horror film. Center for Modern Aging Princeton (CMAP), to Andrea, is about creating a place where older adults from all over are warmly welcomed, can receive access to and support with resources and current information, can be motivated to remain active and mentally stimulated, and can expand their horizons and be excited about lifelong learning. In her retirement, Andrea hopes to enjoy quality time with her family, travel to exciting new places, maintain good health, and stay active. “Enjoy life to the fullest!” she says to her future, retired self, “and be open to new adventures!”
