I am a native of Roswell, New Mexico, where I graduated from Roswell High School and obtained an Associate of Arts from ENMU-R and two Bachelor degrees. One in Business Administration and one in Business Management from ENMU-Portales.
When I could not find a job in the e-business world, I began working as a substitute teacher with the Roswell Independent School District in 1996. A year later, I became a permanent substitute in a special education classroom at Roswell High School. It was during that time that I realized that I did not choose special education, special education chose me. After I decided to become a teacher, I received a Special Education licensure with an endorsement in history, reading, and written language. I remained at Roswell High for 15 years until moving to the alternate site an alternative program teaching at-risk students Special Education students K-12. In 2018, I became an IEP/Transition Specialist for the Independent School District.
As a faithful member of Immanuel Church of God in Christ since 1988, I have always sought to help others and be an example to the young people because my passion is youth. I serve as the Church Administrator, as an usher, and within the hospitality ministry. These efforts have not gone unnoticed, causing me to be the recipient of a Women’s History Award in 2006 for recognition of outstanding commitment and dedication to the community. In 2018 I received the Everyday Hero Award from The New Mexico Office of African American Affairs for outstanding vision, dedication, and commitment to excellence in the African American community of New Mexico. My walk and life as a child of God keep me grounded and thankful.
I enjoy traveling, and I have made it my goal to travel to all 50 states and is just two states shy of this goal. During my downtime, I enjoy surfing the internet and relaxing with family and friends. I believe my greatest accomplishment has been raising my son DonTrell Moore, a graduate of Roswell High and Lobo Hall of Fame inductee, as a single mother. As an elected official, I hope to make a difference to Ward 5 and the City. I hope to gain more leadership skills. My motivation is that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens her” (Philippians 4:13).
