Things seemed to slowly fall apart for Andreea following the 1993 World Championships.

Unfortunately, in the years to come, Andreea suffered a series of back problems. By 1996 is became evident that she would have to miss the Olympics. As though that were bad enough, she was told that her back could take fully two years to heal. All of the girls at Deva are given the opportunity to stay at Deva and finish high school, even if their gymnastics careers end. Andreea opted to do this, and she began assisting the juniors on the team. According to the June 1997 issue of Gym Stars, many of the girls that she helped coach represented Romania at the 1997 European Youth Olympic Games in Lisbon, Portugal.

Andreea explained to ProSport, "I wanted to coach aerobic gymnastics...most of our gymnasts are involved in artistic gymnastics, and there are basically no junior competitors in aerobics." Unfortunately, following a couple of misunderstandings and disagreements, Andreea was forced to quit her job.
