Meet 2015 KC Magazine Most Wanted Auction’s Andreina Byrne

Andreina Byrne

Writer and Communications Specialist at DST

Born and raised in Kansas City, Andreina Byrne is immersed in plenty of local endeavors, beginning with her position as a writer/communications specialist at DST. Outside of office hours, she writes music reviews and community pieces for various publications, models, acts, helps sell merchandise for her dad and brother’s band (local favorites The Elders), and designs and builds furniture at her family’s store, Off the Floor Woodwork.

One look at her very full schedule reflects two of the accomplishments she’s most proud of: continuing to foster growth as a storyteller and finding ways to work with her family, so it should come as no surprise that Byrne considers her mother, Fox 4 reporter Kathy Quinn-Byrne, her mentor.

“Through her actions, she’s always taught me the importance of trying harder, noticing things about others, and remaining genuine,” Byrne says. “People remember how you make them feel, and I feel empowered to see how she gracefully interacts with a kickass disposition.”
