She was consultant for NBC Dateline and the Discovery Channel's investigative series "In Cold Blood" and "Deadly Sins," based on her first book, Death Needs Answer: The Cold-Blooded Murder of Dr. John Yelenic, which focused on the violent stabbing death of a popular Blairsville, PA dentist by a Pennsylvania State Trooper. As a documentary filmmaker Andrea has researched and produced several films including The Helen Richey Story and Close to Closure, a documentary about Amelia Earhart. Recognizing that the death of an individual causes a ripple effect of pain and suffering among family members, friends, and community she has become a victim's advocate, dedicating much of her time and resources to helping and giving a voice to the co-victims of homicides.
