She is one of the most capable and dedicated people I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Las Cumbres Community Services is dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of people of all ages in northern New Mexico. The agency was incorporated in 1971 with a structured program of day habilitation services for adults with developmental disabilities residing in Los Alamos followed soon after with a therapeutic preschool in the Española Valley. Services for adults, children, and families have continued to expand since then in order to best meet the growing and changing needs of the northern New Mexico community. Today, the agency is one of the largest social service providers in the northern part of the state, with a staff of some 200 individuals. Las Cumbres offers direct services in Rio Arriba, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, and Taos Counties.
