Andrea Palombella, Writer | Director | Producer
Andrea Palombella is an award-winning producer and director based near Washington, DC. When her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer twice in four years, she and her family conducted a major lifestyle overhaul.
Part of that transition included learning about toxins in the home, including in personal products. Shocked by the types of potentially toxic chemicals in products she used everyday, Andrea dove in to learn as much about the issue as possible. The idea for taking what she had learned and sharing it with the world became the foundation for this film.
Andrea is passionate about telling stories that matter, bringing important issues to life and inciting positive change. She has created documentary style videos on a variety of topics, including: human trafficking, children exposed to trauma, serving tribal communities and many law enforcement training topics. A Chicago native, she loves film, cooking, going on hikes, and traveling as much as possible.
