My name is Andrea Bruce
I am a Scientific Regulator
When I was 10 I wanted to be an animator.
I work as a Regulatory Officer at Health Canada
I am proud of being part of a team that won an award for innovation and creativity. I am proud of constantly being able to bring value to the table. I never stop learning and as a result am always contributing.
The biggest obstacle I have faced is accepting that no job was worth tolerating sexual harassment. I had to admit that I was not immune to it and ultimately chose to put myself first.
My advice to women is there is nothing shameful about receiving help; it is smart. Women think they have to do it on their own which is not the case. A mentor can be an invaluable resource of help and support.
