Pres­i­dent & project man­ager Nu­clear Waste Part­ner­ship, LLC Carls­bad How do you de­fine “lead­er­ship”?

Lead­er­ship is en­abling an in­di­vid­ual or team to be the best they can be ev­ery day. It’s sup­port­ing, car­ing, pro­vid­ing recog­ni­tion, coach­ing, men­tor­ing and de­vel­op­ing peo­ple daily.

As a leader, who are you in­spired by?

Capt. D. Michael Abrashoff, for­mer Naval Com­man­der, USS Ben­fold. His lead­er­ship in turn­ing around a ship’s per­for­mance utiliz­ing key man­age­ment tech­niques has helped me on nu­mer­ous projects over the last 10 years.

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

STEM and vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion. As an em­ployer, we are very STEM-based and the ma­jor­ity of our po­si­tions re­quire these skills. We, as many New Mex­ico em­ploy­ers, have a great need for skilled trades­peo­ple in the fields of elec­tri­cal, in­stru­men­ta­tion and con­trol and me­chan­i­cal fields to sup­port our work.
