Deputy di­vi­sion leader Los Alamos Na­tional Lab­o­ra­tory Los Alamos

Who or what in­spires you as a leader and

why? My af­fec­tion for the state of New Mex­ico in­spires me to play a lead­er­ship role. I was born and raised in north­ern New Mex­ico and I want the best for this state and its peo­ple.

What do you con­sider to be New Mex­ico’s strengths and how can our state build upon these as­sets? I con­sider New Mex­ico’s peo­ple and ge­o­graphic beauty to be its great­est strengths. We can build on these by keep­ing our youth and fu­ture lead­ers in the state, and also by pro­mot­ing tourism. What steps do we need to take to im­prove the fu­ture of our state? We need to en­gage, ed­u­cate, and lever­age lead­ers in all ar­eas and pro­fes­sions to work to­ward com­mon goals, much like Lead­er­ship New Mex­ico does.
