In the science experiment called life, Andrea considers herself, and her husband, a data point, and her changed behaviour a hypothesis. Abusive behaviour can be stopped.
With a million views, shares and comments, her video When the Police Came is a clear signal that this is a message whose time has come. Her talks, Redeemable Abusers: Possibilities for Healing from the Perpetrator Side of the Equation, and Why Abusers Abuse provide much-needed counterpoints to the prevailing discourse about abuse, and represent a sea change in focus and prevention.
Andrea has traveled to Ecuador, Trinidad, India, and across the United States with the Indrani’s Light Foundation to teach, speak and spread the message of emotional leadership and appropriate anger.
Andrea is also CEO of Thought Partners International, a consulting firm that champions problem-solving, and ideas that are ahead of their time. Described by clients as having a hands-on, “Back Pocket CEO,” Andrea’s strengths lie in helping innovative ideas find footing. Results come in the form of leveraged, sustainable income and, her favourite outcome, measurable change in the mainstream conversation about possibilities.
She is the coach you want when the chips are down, and stakes are high. A thought partner whose game gets better when what you’re working on is deeply important.
When she’s not swimming or paddle-boarding in the lake, or homesteading with her husband of 23 years in the Pacific Northwest, she strives to be worthy of the many blessings in her life, and to live up to what her dog thinks of her.
"Andrea will get you thinking and most importantly operating from a new perspective. Solving problems is Andrea's forte."
"The business coach version of Neil Armstrong.”
"A unique animal: a philosopher with a business brain. She also knows how to make the money happen."
