What excites you about joining the NM Tourism Department?
I am excited to share everything I love about my home state with others in New Mexico and beyond.
What do you hope to accomplish for the tourism industry as a member of the NM True team?
I hope to help industry partners bounce back from the unusual 2020 tourism landscape and continue to thrive here in the Land of Enchantment.
What is your favorite New Mexican dish?
Does Frito pies count? I must confess one of my deepest, darkest secrets; I was not introduced to chile until later in life and, so, I am likely the only New Mexican who does not like it. This is a cause of deep shame on me and my family. I understand I will be bullied mercilessly for it (haha).
What is your favorite thing about New Mexico?
My favorite thing about New Mexico is the world renowned classical music scene and the sunsets. There’s nothing like summer in Santa Fe!
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy creative writing, cosplaying, watching women’s soccer, singing and playing the ukulele.
What sport would you compete in if you were in the Olympics?
My athletic skills would probably be best suited to the speed skating category of the Winter Olympics.
