14Andrea Barber Became An Academic In Women's Studies
Andrea Barber was best known for her role as Kimmy Gibler on the 1980’s show Full House. She took a long hiatus after the show and all but disappeared from Hollywood. She recently made a triumphant return as Kimmy in the Netflix reboot, Fuller House. We now see her alongside
the old gang but many fans have wondered what Andrea has been up to.
According to The Huffington Post: “Barber left the business after “Full House” and acquired a degree in English from Whittier College, received an MA in Women’s Studies from the University of York in England and returned to Whittier as assistant to the director of Whittier College’s Office of International Programs.”
Andres married her husband, Jeremy Rytky in 2002. The couple has two children — nine-year-old son, Tate, and six-year-old daughter, Felicity. So it appears that Andrea was busy raising a family and being a supermom of two adorable kids. Between her academic pursuits and motherhood, she’s had a busy life outside of L.A.
She also likes to keep fit and fills her Instagram account with pics of her training for and running in marathons. That doesn’t sound like something Kimmy Gibler would do but it suits Andrea just fine.
