I attended New Mexico State University for both my Bachelor’s in Social Work and Master’s in Social Work. I have worked in the field since 1994, this is also the year I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree.

I am currently married I have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. I am the third oldest of eight siblings, three boys and five girls.

I became counselor because I like working with people. I like helping people with complex mental health and substance abuse issues.

My goal is to be a good clinical supervisor and work for A New Awakening Rio Rancho as long as I can.
