Why are you interested in a CASI BOD position?
I believe in CASI'S mission and everything that goes with it. I also believe that it is time that the younger generation of chili cooks to start getting more involved. The founders and former BODs, of this great organization, have done an outstanding job. I feel that most of them are tired and just want to sit back and enjoy TICC. I know that we have been molded and taught by some of the best and now it is time that we take lead. I hope by getting elected, I can help CASI bring in younger cooks and push the organization towards new age technology. Thirteen years ago, when I went to the ranch the first time for just the party, I never expected the amount of confidence, knowledge and friendships that I have gained. If elected, I am hoping that this will help pave the pathway for experienced younger cooks to also help take lead.

I was the president of the Hobbs, NM Women;s American Legion Auxiliary for 2012-2015
Kind(s) of skills or expertise that you offer the organization?
I have been an office manger for several oilfield companies over the last 10 years. With that, I bring strong computer skill, new age technology and a very driven work ethic.
How will the organization benefit from you serving on the CASI Board of Directors?
I believe that my strong computer skills, knowledge of new age technology will be huge asset to CASI for many different tasks and or positions.
