Friends of the Alamogordo Public Library
I've been involved with the Friends of the Library for 4 years now and I can say quite certainly, this is some of the most fun and uplifting work I've ever done. Some of my favorite projects - Banned Books Week (specifically the costume gala), the Adult Summer Reading program and One City, One Book. Great community building and literacy projects!

Otero County Community Health Council
I got involved in the Otero County Community Health Council as a result of my job. I quickly fell in love with the monthly meetings. I left every meeting energized, my commitment to the community renewed.
Women's History Committee
A part of the Tularosa Basin Historical Society, this group was the driving force behind Alamogordo's centennial celebration. The women on this committee are absolutely inspiring. They dream big, work hard and are shining examples of the amazing things you can do with a dream of some gumption. I am so very honored that they let me join them in this journey.
Southern New Mexico Wellness Alliance
The Southern New Mexico Wellness Alliance is the board that oversees the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program in Otero and Lincoln Counties. The SANE program has been steadily growing in our community, aiding the victims of sexual violence and building public awareness in an effort to end violence toward men, women and children through such events at Take Back the Night and performances of the award-winning play The Vagina Monologues. I've served on this board and now am employed as the Program Coordinator for SANE.
