Andrea Sweetwood Smith
I am Andrea Smith and I am excited to be in the role of Executive Director for Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome. I look forward to applying my professional experience of project managing and contractor relationships to help expand the reach and awareness of Moebius Syndrome outside of the Moebius community.
I have worked in the commercial construction industry for 35 years with reinforcing steel. As a Detailer and Project Manager I work directly with contractors, engineers, architects, suppliers and rebar placers to make sure my portion of the project runs smoothly, efficiently and with as little conflict as possible in an ever changing field. When my son was younger, I spent 13 years working from home for a nationwide company and then as an independent contractor. This allowed me the opportunity to spend more time with my son and be involved in school fundraising.
I became a part of the Moebius community 10 years ago, shortly after my niece was born. Like everyone before me, until she was born, I had not heard of Moebius Syndrome. I have since spent those 10 years helping to raise awareness for this rare and little known syndrome. As Executive Director of Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome, I look to gain corporate sponsors, expand our outreach in the community and continue to raise awareness worldwide. I have several ideas and plans for MFOMS that will need the support of sponsors and the community to make them a reality, and I hope you will take the journey ahead with us.
Thank you for your support, Andrea Sweetwood-Smith Executive Director Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome
