Andrea Magaña Lewis

Senior Account Executive

Educator. Lobbyist. Public relations professional. Andrea has worn many hats throughout her career and brings a well-rounded perspective to her work. She’ll also tell you her approach to solving problems, no matter how ordinary or complex, can be defined by one word: creative. 

Her passion for strategy development – and her conviction that purpose drives us to achieve our full potential – is what fuels her in providing exceptional service to Werth’s clients. 

Formally educated as a teacher, Andrea also has extensive experience in government relations and public affairs. In her role at the Ohio Commission on Hispanic/Latino Affairs, she served as a Public Policy Officer advising the Governor, General Assembly and State Agencies on matters impacting Ohio’s Hispanic Community. Her work with the Commission has been recognized by the National Conference of State Legislatures for its excellence in exploring topics of interest to legislators. During her tenure with the Ohio House of Representatives, Andrea developed public relations strategies for state legislators and promoted policy initiatives aimed at improving the lives of everyday Ohioans.

When it comes to public service and community engagement, Andrea leads by example. During the past decade she has taken part in mentoring programs through Esperanza Inc., Latina Mentoring Academy and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Central Ohio. She also served on the Ohio Department of Education’s Fairness and Sensitivity Data Review Committee, the Ohio Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Commission, and the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services’ Trauma-Informed Care Committee. She was recently appointed by the Franklin County Commissioners to the county’s inaugural New American Advisory Council.

Getting to know Andrea:

What are your must-have sources for news?
NPR’s Goats and Soda section, The Dispatch and Yahoo. I prefer to read news rather than watch it, as I can be more selective in the content I view.
What do you do for fun when you’re not working?
I love Friday nights, which I refer to as “Blockbuster Night”, because I get to order pizza and watch movies with my husband and two young sons. I also enjoy playing basketball and sand volleyball in my very limited spare time.
What inspires you?
Women who successfully balance family and work life.
What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?
Being told I’m a good listener.
