With five years on the beat as an editor, contributor and globetrotter for Kitchen & Bath Design News, Andrea Girolamo is the founding editor of ForResidentialPros.com, the portal site for KBDN and sister publication Qualified Remodeler magazine. During her tenure working for KBDN, Andrea spearheaded the magazine's sustainable design coverage, from work on an annual green supplement, to 2010's "Profiting from the Green Trend: Designing and Selling Sustainability" webcast.
A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Andrea has had the opportunity to explore many sides of construction and design, traveling the country (and the world) meeting folks around the residential design and building industry to learn what information they considered critical and how they most wanted it delivered to them. From flushing test toilets in Germany, to riding a Caterpillar in a sustainable forest in Brazil, to sitting in on a roundtable on the state of the economy in Indiana, she's been there, and done that. In her role at ForResidentialPros.com, Andrea aggregates the dynamic market coverage of Qualified Remodeler, Kitchen & Bath Design News and Residential Design+Build into one, easy-to-navigate portal site designed to keep the information flowing to those who need it most.
