Q: How do you decompress after a hard week? A: We have a swimming pool for the first time, so I have been enjoying floating with an upward view of the sky and palm trees, and listening the sounds of the birds and waterfalls. It is so meditative, hypnotic and restorative.
Q: What is the biggest challenge facing Southern Nevada? A: The lack of affordable housing for those living at or below the poverty line. As downtown has become gentrified and old hotel and motels turned into condos and boutique hotels it’s becoming difficult for those who rely on disability or social security to find affordable housing. As a result, the homeless problem is getting worse here.
Q: How do you decompress after a long week? A: Riding is obviously up there, or I like to go boating on the lake in the summer. However, I also love to work in our shop on our personal vehicles, doing everything from upgrading and maintaining what we drive on the streets to maintaining and prepping the off-road equipment and toys.

There are so many challenges, but one that is near and dear to me is access to higher education and increasing graduation rates.
Q: What are you reading? A: “Winning” by Jack Welch (for the third time). I have found this book to contain many valuable insights and strategies that I can relate to in my career — particularly the chapter on “Letting Go Iis Hard to Do.” I have got to learn to trust others more.
