A lifelong resident of Fairfax County, Andrea Bayer grew up in Falls Church and proudly attended Timberlane Elementary, Whittier Junior High, and Falls Church High School. After graduating from The College of William and Mary, Andrea returned to Fairfax County to work for a prominent public relations agency. Years later, she joined a boutique government contracting firm.
For the last two decades, however, Andrea has been a full-time “at-home” mom and community volunteer. During this time, she has devoted herself to improving the educational welfare of her neighbors in Fairfax County — including serving as PTA president, teaching English and language arts classes, working as a preschool teacher (for 7 years), working as a substitute teacher, teaching religious education classes at St. Leo’s Catholic Church, and providing children and young adults with private tutoring sessions. In addition, Andrea serves as an elections officer and is a member of Fairfax County’s Committee of 100 and the Fairfax County Taxpayers Alliance.
Andrea is also very active within the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) community in which she has taught GRACE Arts at Waples Mill Elementary, served several years as membership chair for Oakton High School’s All-Night Grad Party, and is currently the treasurer for Oakton’s Girls Basketball program. For the last twenty years, Andrea has attended hundreds of Fairfax County’s School Board meetings and all-day work sessions, has attended the monthly meetings of the FCPS Family Life Education Curriculum Advisory Committee (FLECAC), and has participated in various Fairfax County Council PTA events.
Andrea has been married to her husband, Paul, for 27 years. Together, they have three daughters and a son-law: Morgan and Kyle Borda (who are both Army officers), Jenna (age 21), and Tessa (age 16). The Bayers have lived in Oakton for the last 24 years.
