Since moving to New Mexico in 2005 she has immersed herself in community building, specifically around the issues of land, water and cultural conservation--serving as an elected or appointed volunteer with her local water users' association, soil and water conservation district, water policy advisory board, community planning and preservation groups, and neighborhood acequia association.
