“Andrea is an insightful leader who has years of experience and has proven to be dedicated to delivering care that changes people’s lives,” said John Markley, regional chief executive officer of Centerstone. “We are fortunate to have the benefit of Andrea’s experience and expertise.”

In 2016, Quigley began her career with Centerstone as an urgent care therapist. From February to September 2017, Quigley worked as the coordinator of Centerstone’s Assertive Community Treatment, a program delivering a full range of services to people who have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness, to help the clients remain in the least restrictive environment as possible by utilizing community resources and living independently.

In September 2017, Quigley was named outpatient clinical manager of the West Frankfort and Marion Illinois Centre Healthcare locations. In September 2018, Quigley was appointed MAT project coordinator for Centerstone. Prior to joining Centerstone, Quigley worked at Lutheran Social Services of Illinois as a master child welfare specialist from January 2009 to July 2010 and then child welfare supervisor from July 2010 to December 2015.

“It’s an honor to be able to play a larger role in the success of the agency’s mission of delivering care that changes people’s lives,” Quigley said. “During my graduate work, my major area of focus was on recovery of function following traumatic brain injury and the physiological and psychological effects of recreational drugs. Now, through my work with Centerstone and the MAT program, I feel as though everything has come full circle.”

Quigley, of Harrisburg, obtained Master of Arts in psychology and doctoral degree in psychology from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
