Andrea Brelje

Class of 2025
University of Michigan


Andrea Brelje is a wife, momma, kitchen experimenter, and autumn leaf enthusiast. She hails from Jackson, MI and lived as far away as London before finding her way h o ]\/[ e. With five siblings, she has a lot of practice figuring people out. Psychiatry might have seemed like a given with that background, but it actually caught her by surprise during the latter part of medical school when she began to appreciate how fulfilled she felt when helping facilitate behavioral change. When she's not in the hospital, you'll probably find her outdoor adventuring with her family. Her favorite Ann Arbor activities include kayaking down or running along the Huron River.
