Hi everyone - I'm Andrea
Hi - I'm Andrea and I'm one of the hosts of the R Voice Community. For the past 4 years, I've been working at Cactus Communications, a global technology company that collaborates with and solves problems for different stakeholders in the academic community.
For a little over the past one year, I've been managing CACTUS' global survey on mental health and wellbeing among researchers. I come from an educational background in Psychology and have always been a passionate mental health advocate so this role has been nothing short of perfect (jackpot! 🤩). It's offered me an opportunity to have real conversations with researchers, get to know them as people first, work towards creating safe spaces for them, and lead initiatives aimed towards making academia a more supportive and nurturing place 😊
I love spending time on Twitter, exploring music from various genres, working out (I work out alot! 😅) and being a mom (ahem, slave 😂) to my 3-year old ginger cat Stitches. When left unsupervised, I will eat ALL the spaghetti there is. When I REALLY have free time, I like to kick back with a good book (but not before sniffing those lovely pages), or with a good show on Netflix.
Looking forward to getting to know each one of you soon. 😊
