Who has had the greatest influence on you and why? My parents—they are both very smart and extremely hard-working. They are just as busy in their 70’s as they were before retirement! I grew up with hard examples to follow.
What do you do in your spare time (when you’re not at Flow Science?) Hang out with my parents – we like to go to local festivals, hike at Bandolier, listen to the Santana concert. We saw some great Flamenco dancing this summer too.
What is on your reading list? Do you have a recent favorite? I like Patricia Cornwell novels and Anne Rivers Siddons.
What is the most important thing you have learned from Flow Science customers? Patience.
What is your favorite pastime? Listening to music, dancing, working out.
Looking back over your career, what accomplishment(s) are you most proud of? I am proud of what I have learned over the years in various companies that helped me develop the skills to do what I am doing now at Flow Science.
What are your important accomplishments? Getting myself to the gym every other day!
What is a typical day for you? What projects occupy most of your time? I am responsible for invoicing our customers, paying our bills, doing payroll, entering all financial transactions into the Accounting System, and making sense of it all at the end of each month.
Who has the best Mexican food in New Mexico? I like Maria’s restaurant in Santa Fe—very yummy margaritas—does that count as food?
How would you describe yourself? I am a hard worker and I really want to do a good job. I am also friendly and I can even be funny sometimes.
What helps you get out of bed each morning? That is a tough one. I HATE mornings, especially when it is rainy, cold or snowing. But this is my job and I have a responsibility to be here every day. So that is why I get out of bed…
