I am very excited to be a member of the Board of Directors of Ngage New Mexico. My goal is to enrich the mission and ideals of Ngage NM through my 30 years of expertise and experience in higher education, both as a college professor and administrator as well as a cultural anthropologist with expertise in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. I was professionally trained and educated in three universities (including Stanford Ph.D. ’95 and NMSU B.A. ’85) and I have taught at four universities across the nation, including the University of Illinois and Arizona State University. Currently, I am Affiliate Faculty of Anthropology at New Mexico State University, where I was awarded the 2019 Star of Arts and Sciences by the College of Arts and Sciences.

In addition to being a graduate of NMSU, I also graduated from Mayfield High School (Class of 81). As a member of the Ngage Board of Directors, this is the first time that I am able to serve my home State of New Mexico, particularly my beloved Doña Ana County. In the summer of 2018, I decided to move back to Las Cruces in order to contribute as much as I can to the success of all the local youth who belong to the local communities that helped me become the person, professional, educator, author, and senior scholar that I am today.
