Meet our Guest Speaker: Andrea Strachan Andrea began studying floristry in 2010, after a lengthy career in the culinary arts. Enchanted by European design, she enrolled in the European Master Certification (EMC) program, led by Hitomi Gilliam (Vancouver) and Tomas de Bruyne (Belgium). She earned her EMC certification in 2012 and continues with the program in a leadership capacity as it grows internationally. She has been fortunate to work with and under many acclaimed designers worldwide, and is an active teacher, mentor, demonstrator and dreamer. Andrea works for Brown's the Florist in Victoria BC, and in her spare time also works for the United Way assisting seniors.
