Andrea Bona got a taste for entrepreneurship while working for a company where the boss did not work on-site. Subsequently, Andrea did much of the day-to-day running of the business, and her on-the-job business training whetted her appetite for starting her own operation. She has been her own boss since 2001, and though the work never really ends, there are many benefits that make it worthwhile.
Andrea graduated from CompuCollege School of Business with an Accounting and Computer Applications Specialist Diploma. She was also a Nurse for 15 years back in her hometown of Saint John, New Brunswick, resigning from that due to an shoulder injury. It was after that she recognized her love of numbers. She is grateful for the ability to set her own schedule and to flex with the needs of her clients. Being able to be in control of her day and of making decisions makes her job both rewarding and fulfilling.
Andrea is also a musician and one of the reasons that she originally moved to Ashcroft was because of the old Opera House. It didn't take long for her to discover that Ashcroft is full of wonderful people, and she has developed many cherished friendships over her years here. She is deeply involved in the community and volunteers with numerous groups and events, including the Ashcroft Wellness Fair, WRAPS and Desert Daze.
Andrea still plays music for fun when she's not working, especially the drums. She is also an outdoors-lover who can often be found outside, usually with her dog in tow. She has a deep appreciation for the unique landscape that makes up the Ashcroft area and is particularly drawn to the spectacular and ever-changing hoodoos and the river.
