Andrée is a skilled communicator and has worked in many creative fields before choosing to focus on the web. Working in the music industry as a disc jockey, lighting designer and promoter, she produced live entertainment and corporate events from 1977 through 1990.

Armed with skills in counselling and group behaviour, Andrée spent the next several years in business sales, marketing and product development. She took over a visual merchandising business called Shank International that specialized in decorative's, fabrics, jewelry displays and signage. Unfortunately, the economic climate made selling US products into Canada very difficult and the company folded in 1997.


Design Recognition bannersIn 1998, Andrée had the opportunity to consult, design and manage awards & recognition programs for a well known company.
