Meet Andrea Sanchez, the Town of Patagonia’s Administrative Assistant. Sanchez began working in 2010 and is the friendly voice that answers all calls to the town. She enters utility payments into the system, makes deposits to the bank, payroll, accounts payable/receivable, answers the phones, gets the council books ready for the meetings, and issues business license. 

The most difficult aspect of her job is prioritizing her time throughout the day and making sure all her work is completed.

Sanchez enjoys time with her co-workers and looks forward to seeing members of the community as they come in to pay their bill and to help resolve any issues they may have.

Sanchez said that she hopes “the residents of Patagonia continue to keep making our little town a beautiful place to live.”
