Andrea started her role as the Chief Executive of MGET in February 2022, having worked for the Trust as the Biodiversity Manager since 2018. Before joining, she completed her PhD at the University of Salford, researching the impact of the Mersey Gateway Crossing on the ecosystem services that are provided by the Upper Mersey Estuary. She has been working in and around the estuary for the last eight years and has experience in a variety of environmental issues. Before the Mersey became a central part of her life, Andrea studied and worked on several international environmental projects in Germany, Sweden and Mexico. Andrea is very fond of a good cup of coffee and loves chasing and cuddling her twin toddlers (hence the love for coffee).
