The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Pat Andreine has returned to the work force after partial retirement in order to be engaged and to continue to contribute to our community. She is grateful for the educational opportunities afforded to her through California public education, kindergarten through graduation at Sonoma State in 1976. There she received her bachelor’s degree in the fields of Psychology, Women’s Studies and Business Administration. She received her MBA from University of Phoenix in 1993 and Master of Science in Accounting from the University of Colorado, Denver in 2002. A lifelong learner, she continues to educate herself on many subjects and interests, currently including history, public affairs and philosophy. Her career in business administration and accounting was primarily with non-profit organizations dedicated to improving society, thereby influencing her character. Currently residing in Santa Rosa, California, her hobbies include gardening, embroidery, wine-tasting, art/music appreciation, and participation in book discussion groups.
