My education and experience have focused on reliability/risk analysis for improved decision applications for complex systems. I have applied this skill set as a volunteer on the State Employees Credit Union’s (SECU) Supervisory Committee (previous 17 years) where I’ve served as committee chair and oversaw extensive growth while safeguarding the SECU Members’ assets. My election to the Board of Directors will allow me to better serve you, the SECU Member. I am a Licensed Professional Engineer in NM, I have a PhD in Engineering and currently work as a systems engineer in Northern NM. My experience in the function of complex systems, risk, and informed decisions is invaluable during these economic times facing our community and will serve to shape the strategic goals and direction for SECU to better serve Members.

I ask for your vote to continue serving on the State Employees Credit Union Board (SECU). I have served on the Board of Directors for more than 11 1/2 years and currently serve as Vice-Chair. I previously served as Board Treasurer, Chair of the CEO Selection Committee and Chair of the Facilities Committee providing oversight to SECU facility planning. I believe I have made a difference in decision making and planning and I want to continue to contribute in a positive way to SECU’s operational and fiscal solvency for the benefit of our Members. I have considerable experience in fiscal management in prior positions. I have a Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of New Mexico and have been a member of SECU for over 30 years. Thank you for your consideration.
