Quandrea has been married to my best friend and husband, Phillip Allen, since 2012. Together, they enjoy traveling and visiting other countries, spending time with family, movie and game nights, sports and outdoor activities, and doing small reno/rehab projects. As a former dancer, she loves any and everything dealing with theatre and performing arts. She also enjoys crafting and thrifting whenever she has a chance. But most of all, she enjoys working and spending time in her flower gardens and beautifying the landscape.
