About Loretta Andrade

Hello Everyone!


I am Loretta Andrade from Mangalore (also known as Rome of the East), India! I am an Administrative and Business Operations Professional with over two decades of work experience in India and Abroad. I am very passionate about Animals and Wildlife. I am currently associated with a company called F5 and serve as the Executive Administrative & Business Partner to the Vice President of Engineering who is also the India Business Leader. This is one of the best organizations I have worked for in all my career! I have a wonderful Leadership and Executive Team who have a very strong vision for the growth and development of the company. Over the years, I have acquired and equipped myself with a diverse range of skills. I also love learning new topics and developing further skills to be productive and efficient in my scope of knowledge and work contributions. “Every Winner was once a Beginner”!


Beyond work, I love to spend time with Animals and do work supporting Wildlife Conservation. The reason behind managing multiple corporate and conservation tasks is that I am very passionate and committed to what I do. I believe if you are determined on achieving something that you care about and if you follow a specific routine and have good time management, communication, interpersonal and organizational skills, you can achieve much more than your caliber. Though mine was self-inspiration to take up such work, what moved me personally was the hard work, dedication, and humility of Jose Louies, an eminent Wildlife Conservationist who is a very dear friend and great work partner. We have achieved a lot since August 2020 when we were all confined to Working from Home!


I would love to share my journey and experiences with so many participants from all across the globe and also learn from each of the participants, as I believe everyone has a unique personality.


I learned about the Grant Writing for Wildlife Conservation and Project Management for Wildlife Conservation from a Social Media Post (LinkedIn/Twitter) and that’s what connected me to the amazing Beth Robinson! Thank you for all the great work you have put together and I am sure along with the rest of the Participants, I will have a great and satisfying experience during the Training Programs.
