Andrea grew up in an oil community in Southern Alberta where she developed a love and respect for the outdoors and a respect for the importance of careful stewardship of the land. She realized early on that she wanted to spend her life living and working peacefully within nature’s intrinsic systems. Andrea studied environmental science and GIS and worked in the mining sector after completing her degree. As the Director of Operations and Admin at Iron & Earth, she now uses her skills and passion for the environment to help others transition their careers to the net-zero economy. One of Andrea’s favorite aspects of this role is connecting with workers across Canada who are passionate about putting their skills to work in service of their communities and our collective good.
