Meet Your New USTA Iowa Digital Assistant

January 14, 2021

Andrea Gallagher is the new Digital Assistant covering USTA Iowa. She also covers USTA Nebraska. Originally from the Minneapolis area, Gallagher started playing tennis as a teenager and has loved the sport ever since. In high school she played both tennis and softball. She attended Creighton University in Omaha and majored in Journalism.


She spent ten years working as a reporter at various television stations and one newspaper in Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska. Her favorite part about reporting was meeting new people and telling their stories. One of her most memorable experiences was working in Iowa during the caucuses and meeting all the political candidates.


“I am excited to expand my USTA job responsibilities and cover tennis news in Iowa,” Gallagher said. “I look forward to meeting fellow tennis enthusiasts and telling their stories.”


Gallagher is an active member of the USTA and plays at the 4.0 level. She loves playing doubles and singles, but following a back injury mostly plays competitive doubles.


Her favorite professional player is Roger Federer and she has been to the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, CA, four times. Gallagher currently works as a Communications & Marketing Specialist at Southeast Community College in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has two teenage girls. One is a freshman at KU, and the other is a freshman in high school. 


All USTA Iowa story ideas for Gallagher to feature can be submitted to communications@movalley.usta.com.
