  • Education:  Bachelor's in Wildlife Science from New Mexico State University, Las Cruces, NM. 
    • Assisted two different graduate students with research projects working as a biological technician.
    • Assisted with a project relating to Black Bear population density in New Mexico.
    • Another project, assessing juvenile recruitment.
    • Also, nest success in Lesser Prairie Chickens just south of Portales.
    • I have had a significant amount of training in law enforcement via Basic Law Enforcement Academy and otherspecialized training.
  • Additional Information:  I work as a patrol police officer on campus and assist regularly with special events, investigations, and public outreach.
    • Before I worked for ENMU, I served as a Conservation Officer (Game Warden) for New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.
    • I am passionate about the outdoors and wildlife and I'm always looking for a way to get back to the mountains.
  • One challenge I really struggled with in college, was to figure out what area of study I wanted to pursue. It took some time and it felt like a long and arduous process to find what I enjoyed and could turn into a job. Fortunately, I had people along the way that were able to guide me and help me make decisions about my education, which led me to a Bachelor's degree and some great experiences as a result.
  • I am a Greyhound Connection Mentor because it is important for me to help students reach their goals while they attend ENMU.  Attending college can be a natural progression for some students, but for others it can be confusing, frustrating, and at times difficult to navigate. I would love to help make that transition smoother for incoming freshmen as they learn to excel in their academic career and move towards a successful career.
