Andrea was born and raised on the beautiful, unceded and traditional Coast Salish territory, including the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. Her great grandparents and grandparents were settlers from China and the United Kingdom. Andrea graduated from UVic with a BSc. in Biology and Psychology and from UBC Sauder with an MBA. Before discovering her current career in HR Management and Consulting at TPD, she gained experience in non-profits, ecological restoration and science education. In her free time, Andrea loves to be outside, especially trying new activities, the latest being cross country skiing and road cycling. While indoors, she’s often found trying to make her own environmentally friendly products from cleaners to moisturizers.
