Early Life and Education
Andi grew up in Atlanta, Georgia with her parents Hy and Patti as well as a younger sister named Anna. She attended Marist School, a private Catholic prep school, where she served as co-captain of the cheerleading squad and was voted homecoming queen.
After graduating as salutatorian of her high school class in 2005, Andi headed to Louisiana State University. She graduated magna cum laude in 2009 with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Political Science. Andi went on to achieve her lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer by earning her Juris Doctor degree from Wake Forest University School of Law in 2013.
Career as a Lawyer
Shortly after passing the Georgia bar exam, Andi worked as an Assistant District Attorney for Fulton County. During her brief time as an ADA, she prosecuted cases involving domestic abuse and violence against women and children.
Andi has said that she felt called to this work after seeing how the legal system failed her own mother, who was a victim of domestic violence. Her passion for justice and standing up for others ultimately led to her breakout role on reality television.
Appearance on The Bachelor
In 2013, Andi took a leave of absence from the Fulton County DA‘s office to join season 18 of The Bachelor, starring controversial suitor Juan Pablo Galavis. She was the third runner-up that season, quitting after Juan Pablo made offensive sexual comments about their fantasy suite date.
Andi handled the situation with grace and poise, earning praise from millions of viewers. She emerged as the fan favorite and total star of Juan Pablo‘s season.
Life after The Bachelorette
After her split from fiancé Josh Murray just months after their engagement aired on The Bachelorette finale, Andi moved from Atlanta to New York City for a fresh start.
She began working as a legal analyst for WPIX-TV and writing her first book, It‘s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After. The New York Times bestseller detailed her experiences on reality TV and her difficult breakup.
Andi went on to release a second hit book, Single State of Mind, about her life as a single woman in New York City. She also hosts a popular dating and relationship podcast called Andi Dorfman‘s Single in the City.
Now 35, Andi is back in Atlanta working on developing new TV projects and connecting with her fans through her podcast. She remains an inspirational figure for many single women going through major life transitions.
