I began by career in banking with Wells Fargo bank, N.A. in Lubbock, Texas in March of 2002. Since then I have held various positions in both Texas and New Mexico. During my tenure I have been selected for several leadership programs, including the Potential Leaders Program (PLP), Accelerated Leaders program (ALP), Women District Manager Mentorship Program (WDMMP), and, most recently, Pacific Coast Banking School (PCBS). I am in my second year of a three year program at the University of Washington.
As a Community Bank District Manager I currently oversee nine branches in seven cities within the Four Corners area of Northwestern New Mexico. In my position I lead strategic planning initiatives, risk management oversight, customer retention and acquisition strategies, team member effectiveness and development planning.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and three sons. In addition to hiking and camping we also enjoy volunteering as a family for several causes, including the New Mexico Special Olympics. In my community I currently serve on the board for Tibbetts All Abilities Park (TAAP). I initiated and developed the Wells Fargo Community Support Committee in Northwest New Mexico to increase volunteer efforts and community involvement in Northwest New Mexico. I am on the New Mexico Advisory council for Wells Fargo giving and community relations. I am a past board member of the Gallup Rotary Club and McKinley County Big Brothers Big Sisters.

I am very fortunate to work for a good, honest man, who is not only my boss, but also my friend. That makes my job even better.
My favorite part of the job is seeing the good that results from a little hard work and establishing genuine relationships with people. Buying a house can be intimidating; I enjoy being that person that can walk them through the process, or someone they can call to bounce some ideas off and brainstorm.
Because of my job experience, I am hoping l that I can bring some benefit to Tres Rios Habitat for Humanity. I am excited at the prospect of helping people get into a home in another capacity. I really look forward to being a part of such a great organization. The mom part of me really enjoys counseling and nurturing people. I love trying to find alternative solutions for problems.
I have been married for 39 years to my husband, Tom. He works for the Southern Ute Tribe at Red Willow Production. We have three sons that I am very proud of. Our oldest son, Thomas, lives in Granbury Texas, but works all over the country. He is a former Airman in the Airforce. Our middle boy, Steven, is an Active Duty Army Chief Warrant Officer and is married to Megan who is also prior Military. They are stationed at Fort Bragg North Carolina. My youngest son, Brian, works in Oil and Gas and just recently moved to Carlsbad NM. He is married to Alicia and they have two girls. Those beautiful granddaughters are the light of my life!
For fun, I like to play with my grand kids and go to their activities. I enjoy baking, crafts, and treasure hunting of all kinds – rather it be hunting for a bargain, an antique or gems and rocks. I am a fan of all kinds of music and I love to read good mysteries, travel with my husband and laugh with my girlfriends.
