Patrice Sadler, Executive Director

For 14 years prior to joining the staff in March of 2013, she was business manager for Williamsburg Estate Planning, a law practice owned and operated by her and her husband, John. The wide array of business management duties over those years, including personnel, accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, taxes and insurance, workshops and advertising, parlayed well into the duties of the new part-time position with the Conservancy. While helping to run the law firm, she also interacted with the community as President of Network Peninsula (then Network Williamsburg) for two years and a PTA Board Secretary for three years. Patrice’s career began as a casualty underwriter in commercial insurance, and she held both company and agency positions spanning a decade, in Michigan and Virginia.

Patrice and John have resided in Williamsburg since 1993. They are the proud parents of two young men, one of whom graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2020 and the other attends James Madison University.
