She’s a lawyer and an associate general counsel at Fort L.P. in Washington, D.C. She received her law degree from Georgetown, where she was also an editor for the Georgetown International Environmental Law Review, according to LinkedIn.
Who’s Her Husband?
Andrea Manafort’s husband is Christopher Shand and they got married in 2015.
According to Wedding Style magazine, she had a crush on Shand the first time she met him. He was acting in a film her sister wrote and directed. The couple started off in a long-distance relationship but eventually tied the knot on Memorial Day at the St. Regis in Washington, D.C. and the reception was held at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium.
“I knew she was going to be a stunning bride and I figured the only way I could truly convey that would be the look she saw on my face,” said Shand.
He continued: “I sincerely enjoy my wife’s company,” says the groom, “and she’s the best travel companion.”
According to the magazine, Shand proposed “on Andrea’s birthday while friends and family were gathered at her parent’s home in the Hamptons. It was where they had shared their first kiss and her grandparents would be there.” He told the magazine, “In our opinion, they are the epitome of what marriage should be.” The wedding paid “homage” to Andrea’s Italian heritage, the magazine reported.
