General Services Director
Presbyterian Medical Service
My mission as the President of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico is to make this organization a resource within the State of New Mexico for all building professionals, tradesmen, and anyone involved with facility management. I believe we can serve this community as a primary resource by providing our membership with access to the industry leading technology and knowledge which facility managers need to perform their jobs, and additionally to provide the endless networking possibilities which are critical in this environment. Our goal is to increase our membership base to include anyone who specializes as a facility manager, engineer, blue collar worker, business owner, or civic leader.
I have extensive experience in facility management and operations. From 2001 to 2007 I worked as an operations manager directly overseeing a 15 member service staff within the downtown Albuquerque area where I was responsible for special events and primarily served as a first responder for the Business Improvement District. While holding this position I worked closely with the City of Albuquerque regarding urban development, planning projects for the downtown area. I also served as a director for a federal halfway house, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the facility for 2 years, managing a team of 11 staff members, while working at the Albuquerque Convention Center. My next assignment was Facility Maintenance Director for the Rio Rancho Public Schools; I served for over 5 years. I now serve as the General Services Director for Presbyterian Medical Services where I oversee all maintenance, renovation, and construction projects for the organization.
My lifelong involvement with sports beginning with local youth sports leagues at age six through my collegiate career at New Mexico State University where I played as a defensive lineman and later coached for NMSU football for two years has taught me the value of teamwork and has provided me with the tools to effectively lead and enthusiastically inspire whatever organization where I choose to be involved. Connecting with people is the key to any successful career or organization. I will bring my experience and ability to my role as the president of FMANM.

Honeywell Building Technology
I have been a consultant for Building and Property Managers in New Mexico and Texas for over 10 years. Over the years I've provided support to facility managers and technicians in the areas of commercial cleaning contracts, post-construction clean-up offerings, ground-up construction and renovation, and now building technology and integration aka "smart-building" services and technology. Early in my career, I developed a great love and interest in everything about buildings and to this day, I enjoy looking at building structures and touring facilities as I travel the western region.
From design and architecture to development and construction, to occupancy and critical building systems, I find myself constantly learning old and new methods for infrastructure care and renewal. Keeping buildings up and running and reviving the old into the latest and greatest way of utilizing our infrastructure and operational technologies is my passion now and I believe will remain well into the future. My appreciation for facility maintenance teams and for the trades division is enormous.
I recently went back to school as a student of Applied Trades & Technologies at Central New Mexico Community College. I am currently studying Architectural Carpentry and Blueprint Reading to further my knowledge and support in the industry. I will move towards a concentration in electrical programming and logic controls as I move forward with the next chapter in learning and loving all things facilities.
I joined FMANM in 2012 and have been a member of the Board of Directors since 2014. My latest support role with the board has been as secretary and I love every minute spent with fellow partners and teams in our ever-evolving facilities industry!
