Greetings to you from the Land of Enchantment…. New Mexico! I have so many things I want to do with the title this year, let me get you up to speed. I will be working with one of our State Senators to pass a legislative bill during our next session in January. The bill will address harsher penalties for distracted drivers. I will also be partnering with our Chief of Police in our local high schools bringing awareness to distracted driving through simulators, so students get a real “hands on” feel for the dangers that can arise. I will also be visiting safety meetings throughout New Mexico within our oil and gas companies. Why all the distracted driving talk?? It’s killing people, it has certainly touched my life. My daddy was killed September 6th 2015 by a distracted driver and my mom also became an amputee within the same accident. Well, no one gets to pick the cards they are dealt, so I will now honor the both of them by trying to help this from happening to other families.
A little background…I attended the University of New Mexico where I earned my Business degree in Human Resource Management. Upon graudating, I was employed for our state government in several different capacities over the years. I then went back to school to get my Master’s degree in Education. Teaching was so rewarding as I taught for several years in different subject areas; PE, Health, Business and Family and Consumer Science, before I started my family. Currently I am the Humane Society of the Four Corners President and have been for 8 years which has made it possible to help spay and neuter over 9,000 animals in our community. In addition, I also serve in Kiwanis, representing under privileged children. Our most notable programs are Coats for Kids, Clothes for Kids, and Don’t Meth with Us, a drug prevention program. As Mrs New Mexico I will continue to support the“Victoria’s Voice” Organization, which is also a teenage drug awareness program. It aids families and teens through the destruction that IS drug abuse. We raised over $5,600 so far!!
My life if full, full of testosterone as we have two little boys, Colten (8) and Dillon (3). Our boys are certainly a handful and keep me on my toes. They both make me so proud and I love that they have so much love for each other. My husband Fred, is a Civil Engineer but also enjoys hunting for business ventures that require vision and guts. Somehow he always hits the mark with huge success. He is an adventure in himself, bringing me laughter and an outlook on life that brings me happiness and warmth.
