Intake & Eligibility Contact List
Hello! I have been with Visions since May of 2020. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with individuals and families throughout New Mexico. My educational background is in healthcare; I earned my Masters in Human Resource and Organizational Management.
I am a native New Mexican and love our beautiful state. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my beautiful grandchildren. I also enjoy traveling and exploring new places.
The field of disability is personal to me. I have four children, two of whom were born with disabilities. From the time that my children were born, I learned that a parent’s voice is the most important voice for their child in advocating for them. I, like so many, faced numerous challenges with multiple systems and I had to learn fast! I conquered every obstacle I could and learned from those that I could not change. I have been working in the field of disability for over 30 years as an advocate, liaison, and trainer for both state and federal programs. I also have worked in hospice. I love being in a position where I can connect with others, listen, share ideas and use my experiences and expertise. I hope that I can help empower families with knowledge and confidence to make choices that are best for them with the hopes that individuals can one day advocate for themselves.
I look forward to meeting the families that the Supports Waiver serves throughout the state. I can’t wait to start traveling again, once travel restrictions are lifted so we can meet face to face.
