Get to know Andréa…


We had a chat with Andréa to find out what makes her tick.

Q: What is your favourite way to start the day?
Yoga with my cat, Cee Cee.

Q: When we can travel again, where would your next holiday destination be?
Thailand – second time luckily hopefully! It’s been booked and paid for since 2019, as we were meant to be going last October, but ‘Rona got in the way!

Q: What is your favourite beverage on a hot summer’s day?
Aperol Spritz is my new favourite tropical delight.

Q: What is your favourite way to unwind?
Burying my nose in my Cee Cee’s fluffy belly. A big help through lockdown!

Q: Have you ever had a nickname, if so, what is it and why?
Well my surname was Rouillard, so my nickname was ‘Rou’ which then got changed to ‘Foo Rou’ then to ‘Foo’. I have been called that since I was a teenager – it makes no sense but that’s why!

Q: When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
Recipes, organising an event or for a new job!

Q: Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?
Lip balm – I am addicted!

Q: Name a pet peeve of yours.
Untidiness and little things like the toilet roll being the wrong way round on the holder (it has to be over, not under, amirite!)

Q: What is the best gift you have ever received?
My husband painted a portrait of me holding a basket full of fluffy animals for my birthday – I love it!

Q: What would you do if you won the lottery?
Go on an amazing holiday around the world then open a kitten foster home and be a kitten foster mum!

Q: How did you stay motivated during lockdown?
Lots of lists! And a sense of staying organised helped, along with that 5 o’clock glass of wine goal!

Q: What is your claim to fame?
Paul Young saved my life! He’s a singer from the 80s and he used to live in Guernsey.

Q: What hobby would you get into if time and money were not an issue?

Interior design and professional cheese plates. Check out my attempt!

Q: If you could move to any city, which would it be?

Q: What is your favourite thing about working at Alexander Daniels?
I love that no two days are the same, but helping people achieve their dream jobs is the best vibe! Of course, the people and the culture at AD are the best too!
