KPFA eulogizes that, "Andrea was a true Renaissance woman with an interest in politics, world affairs, sports, science, music and the arts. She was dedicated to discussing on and off the air the issues of social justice, especially in regards to racial and gender equity. Andrea wrote for the Progressive Magazine, sang with the S.F. Symphony Chorus, and was a former Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University."
