A life long Catholic Andrea Hattler Bramson is the second of the seven children of Denny and Carl Hattler. She spent many of her formative years living in Puerto Rico attending Sacred Heart schools and loving life in the tropics. She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Art Studio, and retired from the Federal Government in September of 2017 after 30+ years of service. Andrea has been the president of the Loyola Foundation for over 10 years, and has been a trustee for over 30. She has served on the boards of SOAR!, FADICA, NCEA, and was the president of the pastoral council of her parish in Reston, Virginia. Andrea is the mother of three and now lives in Bluffton, South Carolina with Brian, her husband of over 25 years, her daughter Victoria, and the two dogs that show anyone unconditional love. She moved to South Carolina so her home could be a 10 minute walk from her parents' home, who she loves dearly and from whom she continues to learn on a daily basis.
As you ponder your life, tasks, and responsibilities, let yourself doubt (kinda like John the Baptist), be confident that God accompanies us with love and mercy, and then let yourself stay TRUE to your vocation – whatever it is.VIEW
