I bring a fresh perspective, creativity, and holistic systems-thinking to explore your biggest questions and challenges together.

I create safety and trust by prioritizing people, meeting them where they are at, holding space, and inviting their stories.  

Meet Andrea

My name is Andrea Oakunsheyld (she/her) and I am a white, curvy, neurodivergent, disabled, queer bigender woman working on the traditional, ancestral, and stolen lands of the xwməθkwəyə̓ m (Musqueam), səlilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Swwú7mesh (Squamish), and Stó:lō Nations. I come from the MacKay clan of Scotland, the O’Farrell clan of Ireland, and the Eder and Swoboda families of Austria.

She is wearing read lipstick and a black scoop neck top that shows a green and purple tattoo of a Scottish thistle. Andrea is looking gently to the left and has a calm expression.

"Working with Oakunsheyld Consulting was a transformative and impactful experience. Andrea’s planning expertise and anti-oppressive approach were invaluable assets to our time together. Her work on our 2021 Homelessness Situation Analysis Report and 2022-2032 Strategic Plan empowered the Task Force to continue our work in a more human-centred way. Her time with us revolutionized our path going forward– she thoroughly understood our work and where we needed to grow. I have deep gratitude for Andrea’s collaborative and organizational skills, strategic approach, and her guiding values."

- Rebecca Knight, North Shore Homelessness Task Force Coordinator

My purpose is to co-create a liberated world where communities are defined by a deep sense of belonging and healing. I do this by working iteratively with diverse clients across scales to create transformational change and centring solidarity with those most impacted by oppression.
