Chief executive officer & chief medical officer TriCore Reference Laboratories Albuquerque
What do you consider to be the weaknesses facing New Mexico and how can we overcome these challenges?
We must establish our public education system as the best in the nation. As a constant recruiter, it has impressed me how important the opportunities available for children is a major driver to a young workforce. Making the transition in education will require leadership from all sectors and a funding commitment.
Describe your vision for New Mexico in one sentence.
My vision for New Mexico is a place with such a vibrant culture, strong economy and beautiful environment that all our children and grandchildren choose to live close by (though not too close).
What would it take to realize that vision and how can you contribute?
As New Mexicans, we must first believe in ourselves. We need to grow our own leaders, which will require strategic vision and a willingness to diversify our economy. At all of our worksites, I am committed to hiring the best and brightest local talent and investing in their personal and professional growth.
