Andrea Visser, Director of Operations & Administration
B.Sc. Geography Major- Concentrations in Environment and Sustainability, Geomatics (UVIC)
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.

It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.
We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.
We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
