Chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer and ad­min­is­tra­tor Ha­cien­das at Grace Vil­lage Las Cruces How do you de­fine “lead­er­ship”?

Lead­er­ship is set­ting a vi­sion and demon­strat­ing a will­ing­ness to set the ex­am­ple for his or her team. Great lead­er­ship asks ques­tions and helps those achieve the over­all goal through men­tor­ship and coach­ing.

What do you con­sider to be the top is­sue or con­cern fac­ing New Mex­ico to­day? Why?

Ed­u­ca­tion rep­re­sents our past, present and fu­ture. The chal­lenges we face as a state are due to the ex­pec­ta­tions we have set in the past. We must chal­lenge at a leg­isla­tive level to cre­ate change that will shape our fu­ture.

What spe­cific skills/knowl­edge do you hope to gain from your par­tic­i­pa­tion in Lead­er­ship New Mex­ico?

I look for­ward to form­ing re­la­tion­ships that will spark new ideas and cre­ate a cul­ture where we value dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives and ex­pe­ri­ences. To­gether, we can help grow op­por­tu­ni­ties that al­low New Mex­ico to be­come a leader of the fu­ture.
