The founder of YourTango is one busy bee.
You already know YourTango for its smart-silly-helpful content on love and relationships. You rely on Ask YourTango when you have a relationship conundrum. You wait with bated breath for our video content, which often features celebrated love experts. But what about the staff behind the site? Who makes up the tireless team toiling away at their computers, flipping through the latest books on love and sex, scanning the tabloids for the latest celebrity love stories, giving you dating advice and bringing you the latest news and trends on all things couple-y? Our team is made up of both men and women. We're single, coupled-up and married. We're caretakers to entire posses of cats, puppy dogs and, in some cases, children. We each bring a unique viewpoint to YourTango content. And we want to say howdy. Today, we introduce you to YourTango founder and CEO Andrea Miller.
A graduate of Tulane University, with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an M.B.A. from Columbia Business School, Andrea started out as the managing editor of The Bottom Line, her school’s student newspaper. Prior to launching Tango, Andrea’s career was in finance and consulting, including positions with Goldman Sachs, ICF Consulting and Enron’s international finance team. While with Enron, Andrea was based in Mumbai, India for three years.
Andrea is featured frequently in the media, and has appeared on The Today Show, The Early Show, CNN, Fox News, ABC and radio stations across the U.S., as well as in numerous national publications such as USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, and Business Week. She is a frequent panelist and guest speaker in classes at Harvard University, Columbia University, Fordham University, The Wharton School and New York University.
Andrea is also a licensed private pilot, and is a passionate karate practitioner. In addition, she served as one of the original co-heads of the New York Chapter of 85 Broads, an independent global network of female professionals and students. She actively seeks to promote entrepreneurship among women; she is the co-founder of the Women Entrepreneurs Network, an active network of females who represent some of the tri-state area's most talented and promising young entrepreneurs.
Most recently (like, just the other week), Andrea gave birth to an adorable (we've seen pictures) baby boy. As if she wasn't already busy enough.
