Born in Stoney Creek to an autoworker’s family Andrea earned her degree in Labour Studies from McMaster University paying her way with low-wage jobs. After university, Andrea took jobs organizing in her community – teaching and training workers in Hamilton, developing co-op housing in Welland and working as a community organizer for a local legal clinic. Her own life experience and those of the people she worked with daily led her to politics.
After serving seven years as a Councillor in the rough-and-tumble world of Hamilton municipal politics, Andrea cracked the Liberal fortress in Hamilton winning election as the MPP for Hamilton East and restoring the NDP to party status at Queen’s Park.
