We believe it’s important for you to be clear-eyed about who you learn from, so we’ve created a timeline of the major events in Andrea’s life over the last 20+ years.

From No Shoes to Ocean Views in one generation…
Personally speaking, as you have no doubt noted, Andrea is of Asian descent – first-generation Canadian-born Taiwanese to be exact. A clue to who Andrea is can be found in the fact that though she now lives with her husband on an acreage with Pacific Ocean views, a short generation ago, her Dad got his first pair of shoes at the age of 5.
One of her mom’s most vivid memories of childhood was of trying to quiet her baby brother whose crying might give away their hiding place in a ditch during an air raid. That so much can change in a short span of time is the backdrop to what Andrea knows is possible – almost anything.
Growing up Canadian, Andrea’s experience in business started at age 11 when she helped her Dad sort receipts and enter them by hand into a blue ledger book. As an adult, she stepped into entrepreneurship in 1999 with a recruitment business which soon morphed into what you see on these pages.
The Unlived Life Is Not Worth Examining
Andrea has some fluency in two of the world’s most difficult languages – Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. She was in China during Tiananmen Square, which she thinks is somehow connected to the ease with which she can tell the most confrontive of truths – in a way that has people thanking her afterward. She’s training to do her first adventure races has been a trainee of the Feldenkrais(R) method.
Her favorite meal is chez hubby Mike. Freshly-made pesto, spaghettini, and planked salmon on the BBQ dressed with caper butter. Her sins are books and baths, but she hopes to discover some others. She used to have a very bad temper, just ask her two younger brothers. Her work doubles as play; but she’s also recently become a fan of hammocks. She has no kids, so if she looks young to you, that’s probably why.
Oh yes, she has luckily and challengingly (in a good way) been married to Mike Flannery – as likely to be discussing business as walking their dog Oz in some remote place in British Columbia – since 1995.
To investigate coaching with Andrea, there are three options: large group, small group and individual. If you are interested in pursuing one of these, click here to express your interest and set up a ‘Let’s talk’ interview directly with Andrea. Just one thing…
Be prepared to move quickly into deep waters, as she is not a coach who likes to dally or prolong a coaching relationship. You are the kind of client who will benefit most from selecting Andrea as your coach if you seek money and meaning, together without compromise, have a big vision, and are ready to act on it.
