Before she worked at JFCY, she worked for Kensington-Bellwoods Community Legal Services in Toronto and Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic in Thunder Bay. Andrea volunteers regularly at The 519 Church Street Community Centre, where she coordinates the free Legal Advice and Referral Clinic, geared towards assisting low-income queer and trans people with legal issues. What captivated her about being a lawyer was the ability to help people, while having an intellectually stimulating career. Nevertheless, before making her decision she had thought about different careers such as counselling and construction work. However, if she were to have a second career she would run a bed and breakfast which offers a fitness facility.
