Introducing Andrea Thomas, the heartbeat behind our order expediting operations at BBP. Hailing from Jackson, MS, Andrea now calls Calera, AL home, where she juggles her bustling family life with her role as our dedicated Order Admin.

If given the chance to do it all over again, Andrea would buckle down more in her youth—a testament to her growth mindset and commitment to continuous improvement.


When it comes to her dream dinner party, Andrea would choose to dine with four of her closest loved ones who have passed on, cherishing the opportunity to reconnect and reminisce. Andrea’s life has a soundtrack, and if she had to choose one theme song, it would be “Schoolin’ Life,” a tune that embodies her zest for learning and living to the fullest.
