About The Speaker


Andrea Kassem is an experienced nurse who came to San Antonio 25 years ago from a small town in Ontario, Canada. Andrea holds three specialty nursing certifications in oncology and patient navigation. In addition, she is a Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach and received her training at Duke University. Most recently, Andrea worked at Baptist Health System where she played an integral role in the inception on the navigation program and went on to lead her team as manager of the Baptist Cancer Navigation Program. During her tenure in this role, she was instrumental in accreditations, quality, community outreach, national speaking and process improvements. Most important to Andrea was being part of her patient’s care team- offering support and education throughout their journey with cancer. Merging her roles as a nurse and a health coach has given her opportunity to empower individuals with the tools and resources to take charge for their overall health and wellness, creating a life that is authentic, healthy and joyful.

In Andrea’s spare time, she loves to bake and share her goodies. She also loves yoga, reading, and running and is determined to improve her golf game. She is a nature lover and LOVES downhill skiing. In addition, she is blessed to be the mom to two wonderful children, her daughter is attending University of San Francisco and her son is in 6th grade. Andrea is currently attending the Nutrition Therapy Institute and is on a journey to complete her certification as a Board-Certified Holistic Nutritionist.
