About the Author
As a child Andrea Laurel lived on a dairy farm and was involved with agriculture clubs such as 4-H and Future Farmers of America. Her first jobs were in Foodservice. She stayed in the business and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality in 1991. She has worked in the Foodservice profession for over 30 years, in restaurants, catering, clubs and hotels. Always interested in food and marketing, she has learned much about food over the past three decades, not just from professors, but in real world practices. In 2006 she became a certified combat active firefighter with the Plantation Fire Department and later became a certified Emergency Medical Technician-Basic. Her knowledge of food and firefighters led her to write this rationale to inspire her fellow firefighters to adopt a plant based diet.
