She represented the Faroe Islands at the 2000 Summer Paralympics, winning three silver medals, in the S8 50m freestyle, the S8 100m freestyle, and the S8 400m freestyle, and a bronze in the S8 100m backstroke.

She was the Faroe Islands' sole representative at the 2004 Summer Paralympics, where she won the Islands' only medal: a bronze in the S8 400m freestyle, with a time of 5:26,29.

Andreasen competed again at the 2008 Summer Paralympics, and was the Faroe Islands' flagbearer during the Games' opening ceremony. She did not win a medal. It was her last participation in the Paralympic Games.

There were no Olympic-sized pools in the Faroe Islands, where Andreasen trained in a 25-metre pool.
