Paul – Owner
Andrea – Office Manager
Andrea takes care of the Human Resources, Payroll, Recruiting and Accounting at Ethical Waste Services.
Andrea moved to Coquitlam, BC from Slovak Republic. She studied Office Administration and Human Resources in her home country. The drive to achieve more in life lead her to decision to leave Slovakia in 1997 and go experience the world. 3 years of living in Germany, England and travelling around Europe thought her independence and validated to her that with hard work the possibilities in life are endless.
In 2004 she landed a job in the gaming industry as Recruitment Coordinator for Electronic Arts and started Human Resources Certification night courses at BCIT which allowed her to progress to Human Resources Coordinator position within the company. In 2007 she accepted a position at Propaganda Games in Vancouver to further progress in her career.
In 2010 Andrea and her husband Paul welcomed their twin daughters, Jennifer and Nicole. It’s the hardest and most satisfying job she’s ever had. Children tend to change your world. With the experience that she gained during her time in gaming industry she was able to step in and partner with her husband on running their family business. It allowed her to spend quality time with her daughters and contribute to the successful growth of the business at the same time.
“Being a part of Ethical Waste Services made me a better mom and better person overall. Donating 50% of profits sounded challenging at first but as I heard “the impossible is often untried”. There is nothing more satisfying in life then knowing that you are making a difference.” Andrea MacDonald
