Andrea J. Boudreaux, Psy.D., MPH, MA, FACHE
- Executive Director
Andrea J. Boudreaux, Psy.D., MPH, MA, FACHE, is a committed healthcare executive and pediatric psychologist with nearly two decades of progressive leadership in healthcare administration and clinical practice. She is a dedicated clinician who recognizes the plight of minorities in both mental and physical health. An honors graduate of Howard University and Texas A&M University School of Public Health, Dr. Boudreaux is excited to return to Washington, D.C., and lead this important work addressing the needs and improving health outcomes and access for children across the District.
Dr. Boudreaux is board certified in Healthcare Management as a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives. In 2022, she was named one of 10 Diversity Leaders to Watch by Modern Healthcare.
Prior to joining Children’s School Services, she worked with national health systems HCA, Kaiser Permanente, Triad Hospitals and Catholic Health Initiatives in senior leadership roles where she led organizational transformation, prioritized equity and integrated mental/behavioral health into primary care. Dr. Boudreaux is a champion of health equity and population health initiatives that shift organizational strategy around the needs for the patient and community.
During her time in clinical practice, Dr. Boudreaux sought to improve the health of her patients by recognizing the importance of meeting not only their psychological and emotional needs, but also ensured their social and physical needs were met. Her research included integration of spirituality/religion into psychotherapy as well as the underutilization of mental health services within the African American community. While she spent her clinical practice addressing mental health needs, Dr. Boudreaux is a champion of maternal health and eliminating disparities for women and babies of Color. Currently, Dr. Boudreaux co-chairs the Healthcare Access and Quality workgroup of the Mom and Baby Action Network, a partnership between the March of Dimes and the Centers for Disease Control, and she recently completed her tenure on the Executive Committee of the Board of the Healthcare Transformation Task Force. She serves as an alumni member of the TAMU School of Public Health Advisory Board and is Vice Chair of POWER Foundation.
Dr. Boudreaux's network includes membership in American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), American Psychological Association (APA), Women Business Leaders of the US Healthcare Industry (WBL), and National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE). For fun, she enjoys cycling and running with her peloton family, showcasing her vocal and dramatic gifts in community theatre, and participating in community service activities with her sorority sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.
