How do you de­fine “lead­er­ship”? Lead­er­ship leaves a legacy. A great leader in­spires, en­cour­ages and em­pow­ers those around him/her to­ward a com­mon goal. The leader leads by ex­am­ple, is not afraid of con­flict or fail­ure and al­ways does what he/she be­lieves is right. When the leader is gone, the vi­sion re­mains.

What do you con­sider to be the top ac­com­plish­ment in the past 5 years in our state? Why? Our lead­er­ship and rep­re­sen­ta­tives have done a good job bring­ing new busi­nesses into New Mex­ico. For ex­am­ple, the Face­book Data Cen­ter and re­cent an­nounce­ments of the Net­flix pro­duc­tion stu­dio and Stam­pede Meat will in­crease jobs and pro­mote eco­nomic growth and de­vel­op­ment in our state.

What has in­spired you or been the high­light of your Lead­er­ship New Mex­ico ex­pe­ri­ence so far? I am in­spired by the speak­ers, class­mates and for­mer pro­gram par­tic­i­pants. The speak­ers are pas­sion­ate and pro­vide great in­for­ma­tion. The in­di­vid­u­als in the pro­gram are ded­i­cated and want to make a dif­fer­ence in our state.
