Andrea currently has the opportunity to work and learn under Ph.D. Candidate Nathaniel Pollock and Dr. Martha MacDonald of the Labrador Institute.

Specifically she will be working on the project titled, “Determinants of healthy aging in Labrador: Perspectives from older adults and seniors.” This project will address knowledge gaps in regards to what it takes for older adults and seniors to age well in Labrador.

During her time at LI, Andrea also has the opportunity to work under Dr. Gabe Wollum on another project looking at best practices around tuberculosis care in northern Labrador.

Andrea studied at Memorial University where she earned her B.Sc. in Kinesiology (Hons), and received her Masters in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University.

In her free time Andrea enjoys the outdoors, photography, and volunteering with youth.
