Born and raised in Santa Fe, she left to attend the University of Arizona, where she earned a degree in Sociology, with a minor in Pre-Law. Andrea moved back to Santa Fe to serve her community as a police officer for 13 years, rising to the rank of lieutenant. Using her law enforcement background, she created a course on safety and situational awareness for Realtors and travels around New Mexico teaching these techniques. As a Realtor for the last five years, working with her father Robbie Dobyns, Andrea has quickly become involved with the Association, serving as chair of the education and government affairs committees and as a member on the community services, technology and membership committees. Andrea was awarded Rookie of the Year by SFAR in 2017. She is a graduate of the Growth and Involvement program, offered through the New Mexico Association of REALTORS®, where she currently serves as a board director. Andrea encourages every SFAR member to volunteer with the Association for an invaluable experience and learning opportunity.

After selling the restaurant, he moved to California where he worked as a manager of a Rubio’s franchise, sales manager at a local auto dealership, and lastly, as a Realtor with a leading real estate agency. Joshua was recognized as “Rookie of the Year” by his agency and has garnered over 20 years of experience in the industry.
