“Endeavor to do hard things and HARD becomes the NEW FUN.” This has become a truth that Dr. Andrea lives by and is compelled to impart to audiences of all ages.
Her passion for impacting lives led her on a journey of learning and leading. Currently, as the Founder and President of Elev8Life educational foundation, Andrea is living her dream of creating a thriving culture of “TLT”, Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, who discover their identity and walk in their purpose. Dr. Andrea has developed Elev8Life to include three experiential programs; iDENTIFY Impact for teens-20s, Elev8Women and the Elev8Life Ambassador program providing opportunities for servant leadership, educational travel and missions.
Andrea’s vision fuels the burning passion to help others experience personal growth and a healthy lifestyle of stewardship (body, soul and spirit), which naturally provokes “getting off the sidelines of life and stepping into the greatness inside of you.”
Gleaning from almost two decades of mentoring, coaching, teaching and speaking, often with her husband Dr. Jeff Hazim, Andrea co-authored and co-produced the “Lessons for Healthy Living” series, which has transformed the lives of thousands.
Dr. Andrea is not only a mother to three young men and known as “Aunt Anj” to many mentees, but as a speaker and author, she is known for her insightful teachings and relevant word pictures. Global audiences are captivated by her transparent story-telling, interactive props, and dynamic teaching style.
Dr. Andrea Hazim serves as an advisory board member for the World Leadership Summit (WLS). Together, Elev8Life and WLS is sure to change lives and impact culture on a much broader scale. Andrea has taken on the role of Executive Director of the Elev8Women IMPACT Intensive as part of the WLS event.
