Andrea was born and raised in the GTA, but also calls Lebanon home. She brings with her professional experience in nonprofit fundraising, membership support, as well as over 11 years in the service industry. She holds a Masters in Environmental Studies from York University where her research allowed her to explore and connect the theories and concepts of environmentalism, feminism, arts-based advocacy, community-led sustainable development, and the UNSDGs. Her curiosity and need for adventure continue to inspire all that she does.
Andrea truly believes in the power of community to bring forth positive change in the world and has had the privilege to see this first hand through lived experience, travel, her academic research, and career. She helps to facilitate change by fostering an inclusive community and amplifying the voices of inspiring social impact champions dedicated to changing the world for good by putting people and planet first. At CSI, she passionately and tactfully acts as the members go-to person on products and programs, and their hype girl— or as CSI calls it, Membership Animator.
