Entering the sphere of local government, Holly is drawn to the relationship building and reconciliation aspects of the job.
Having moved to Lincoln in early youth, Andreatta calls Placer County home and it’s where her heart is; with exception of the years and affection she holds for Bethany University, where she earned a bachelors degree in social studies, along with a teaching credential.For the better part of the last 30 years, Holly taught in private and public schools including the last 14 years teaching U.S. history and government at Cooley Middle School in Roseville.

She is often invited to speak and teach at various women’s events and other venues. Holly and her husband have been married for 30 years and have four grown children.
