Andreanne serves as the global staff resource for policies, systems, quality monitoring and training for Controlled Wood certification services implemented across 100+ countries.

The education of forest certification for the livelihoods of surrounding forest communities and on the sustainable development of the industry is close to my heart. I enjoy educating my clients on the impact their certification has on long-term sustainability. I may be an auditor, but I also consider myself an educator for all, as knowledge is the key to moving forward and making better decisions for our planet.
