Vice pres­i­dent for stu­dent suc­cess New Mex­ico State Univer­sity Las Cruces

As a leader, who are you in­spired by? I am in­spired by lead­ers who have ex­hib­ited strength, courage and per­sis­tence in ad­vanc­ing causes that make the world, their or­ga­ni­za­tions and their com­mu­ni­ties bet­ter places.

What do you con­sider to be the top is­sue or con­cern fac­ing

New Mex­ico to­day? Why? I be­lieve New Mex­ico needs a work­force that is highly skilled and pre­pared to be suc­cess­ful in the econ­omy of the fu­ture. To that end, I be­lieve the state needs the in­fra­struc­ture, in­clud­ing high speed broad­band, to al­low New Mex­i­cans to be in­no­va­tive, place-based en­trepreneurs who can en­gage in telemedicine, big data and con­tent cre­ation. What has in­spired you or been the high­light of your Lead­er­ship New Mex­ico ex­pe­ri­ence so far? The ex­pe­ri­en­tial learn­ing that oc­curred dur­ing the ropes course taught me a great deal about sup­port, mo­ti­va­tion, col­lab­o­ra­tion, and fac­ing fears and chal­lenges.
