Vice pres­i­dent & gen­eral man­ager Zia Park Casino, Ho­tel & Race­track Hobbs

Who or what in­spires you as a leader and

why? I am in­spired by men­tor­ing, work­ing with and watch­ing team mem­bers grow. I love getting peo­ple in­ter­ested in their own de­vel­op­ment and help­ing them to blos­som into some­thing be­yond what they thought pos­si­ble.

How do you see your­self ap­ply­ing your Lead­er­ship New

Mex­ico ex­pe­ri­ence? I see my­self getting more in­volved in pub­lic pol­icy than I have in my past. What I have learned thus far and ex­pect to learn in fu­ture ses­sions is to­tally trans­ferrable to my busi­ness life, home life and per­sonal well­be­ing. What steps do we need to im­prove the fu­ture of our state? The state has to tackle the poverty and ed­u­ca­tional is­sues. New Mex­ico has all the nat­u­ral re­sources needed to cre­ate ad­di­tional tax dol­lars which could be used to re­verse the cur­rent trend(s), pro­vided bu­reau­cracy is put aside.
