Andrea’s professional work experience began in 1979 as a Registered Nursing Orderly at the Saint John Regional Hospital. As she moved westward, Andrea was employed by R.L. Polk & Co. as a Satellite Office Manager. Once settled in Ashcroft, British Columbia and from 2002 to present, Andrea owned and operated bonafide books, meticulously dedicated to working with local businesses and individuals.
Andrea had always been a staunch community advocate in Ashcroft; she was a kind-hearted individual, always willing to assist others. She was ceaselessly proud of and loyal to her many friends, near and wide, all of whom had unreserved and positive influences on her life. She had a huge love and devotion to her pets and truly brought positivity through her humour and kind heart.
Affectionately nicknamed Blue hazel eyes, Andrea was a bundle of awesomeness and our memories of her will become our treasures.
