Andrea joined November Club in January 2019 as Business and Operations Director.

Andrea’s love of performance started when as a child she acted as a piece of seaweed dancing to Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave. She pursued her studies in drama and theatre culminating in a BA Hons in Theatre Studies from Warwick University. After university, Andrea had a number of IT related jobs before moving into a training role at Northern Rock. From them she set up her own business delivering training and life coaching, becoming a qualified Life Coach and Counsellor along the way.

In 2009 she started working in the charitable sector at Northumberland County Development Network, helping to deliver training and support programmes and developed an understanding of the third-sector in Northumberland. In 2012, her knowledge of Northumberland, experience of running her own business and her counselling certification opened up an opportunity to take on the Northumberland Development Worker role for Grace, Northumberland Rape Crisis a service of Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland. Shortly after, she moved into the Co-CEO role.

Andrea is responsible for funding, finance, human resource management at November Club.
