“My greatest passion is supporting an employee from before they even start, and watching them thrive as they grow with the business!”
Andrea is Canadian, with all the politeness that goes along with being brought up there. Working with people therefore seemed a natural fit… She is a Senior Professional in Human Resources specializing in Employee Experience, with many years of partnering with executive leadership in order to support their business vision. One of her favorite things to do is to help startups scale and grow, with happy employees leading to happy customers. She is a hands-on culture curator, process builder, efficiency-finder, and creative thinker who knows that employees are the heart and soul of a company.
At ALC, Andrea is supporting company growth by recruiting top-notch financial professionals and then supporting them throughout their career with leadership, professional development, performance management, employee relations, and a bit of Canadian humour.
Andrea’s HR career started as a business owner. She and her husband owned a small company with 7 locations on Colorado’s Front Range, where she acted as the head of operations and learned how to balance the needs of the employees with the needs of the business.
That led to her studying for certification and working for larger companies where she discovered her passion for enabling employees to be their best selves by building a framework of support around them. She has worked in diverse industries such as digital marketing, aerospace, government contracting, and finance, and brought culture-based awards such as SHRM’s “When Work Works” and Denver Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” to the companies she loves.
Senior Professional of Human Resources (SPHR)
University of Vancouver Island (Theatre)
Andrea and her husband live in Longmont, CO. Their son is a student at the University of Colorado and she has found so much joy and purpose in being his mother that she’s despairing of him leaving the nest. It’s either that, or the fact that he’s a computer genius and she really needs his skills… The family has spent the last 21 years boating on CO and WY lakes, camping, motorcycling, concert-going, and bike riding.
(Although if you ask her boys, Andrea’s favorite thing to do is wait until they’re both out of the house and then relax in a bubble bath with a book and a glass of wine!)
