ANDREA IERVELLA

Founder + CEO

I’m Andrea Iervella, a west Canadian girl that loves anything artistic. I’m the mom who couldn’t bear to throw away any of my children’s art and school work…from their first drawings of people to the hand made cards with their little hand prints painted and stamped with love. Just like many of you my little ones continuously bring home their art projects and stories throughout the year to show off their precious one-of-a-kind creations!

It wasn’t until my oldest child came home with the Rice Krispie tree that she had glued each and every single one on as leaves that I thought to myself “How in the world could I save this one?” and so it started. I began photographing those pieces of art that would not stand the test of time in a box and made my children their own hard covered art books.

Andrea is the winner of the 2015 Mompreneur® of the Year Award of Excellence for Canada. 

I’m the mom that always found it incredibly difficult to throw away something that meant so much to them and to me.

TANYA TUCKER

Chief Production Officer

I’m Tanya Tucker, and yes I sing, but only in the shower! I’ve spent 13 years working in the non-profit sector and learned a lot about the value of working to support communities. I have found my passion in helping others – to make their lives easier, and support them however I can. I am a wife and mother of two great kids. I’m a Girl Guide leader – to spend time with my daughter; Member of the School Council – to support and give back to the school that cares for my kids 10 months of the year; and wannabe homesteader – because I dream of a simpler life with real food and hand-made goodness.

I’m excited to be a part of SchoolWorx as I get to combine my passion for making other peoples’ lives easier (and storage bins “lighter”!), with my desire to be more involved in the lives of my growing kids.

I’m the mom that always had to explain how one of their many precious pieces ended up in the recycling bin.
