Developing an early passion for science, Andréane earned a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry and a MSc in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of Ottawa before doing her PhD in Biomolecular Sciences at Laurentian University. She is currently working toward an MBA.
She has spent many years volunteering with the Valley East Minor Hockey Association as a Board member and manager and continues to volunteer with the SPCA, which has been a lifelong passion.
A proud Franco-Ontarian, Andréane has lived in Hanmer for 14 years and now operates a regenerative hobby farm with her husband René Contois, who was born and raised there. Their children, Olivier and Camille, attended the same schools their father did.
Andréane wants to take her knowledge, skills and experience in representation and put it to work for the residents of the Nickel Belt.
