Why do you believe in Four Corners Economic Development (4CED)?

4CED is the community’s advocate. It waves the flag that says “look over here and what about us!” It advances the community’s organizations and business goals and helps the citizens who live and work here to be a healthy, thriving unit. When we do it together, we can do more.

Why did you want to serve on 4CED’s board?

I want to serve and use my skills to be a part of the community I love.

Why do you love to live and work in San Juan County?

San Juan County is my home. My husband and I could have picked another location to start and run our business but the people are amazing and the outdoor landscape is beautiful.
