Tori is Certified in Customer Services and is an experienced receptionist. Tori is a proud wife and mother to three children and finds joy in helping to make a difference in Lea County.

Describe your job in three words: 

Social – Public-Oriented – Inclusive

What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now?

I get to work on a little bit of everything we do here at the Foundation, so for me the coolest thing is getting to work alongside with such an inspiring group of people.  

What is your favorite part of the job? 

My favorite part of the job is having the ability to show kindness to the people of our community. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone needs kindness, and if I have been able to give that to someone, then I’ve done my part in making a difference in someone’s day. 

If there was one person at the Foundation who you could trade jobs with, who would it be and why?

I’m actually very happy with my role here at the Foundation. I’m a social butterfly, so getting to help and interact with others gives me a great sense of joy!

Finally, something we’d never guess about you!

I’m very adventurous! It’s exciting to see new places, new cultures, try new foods, and do different activities. Even if I ended up not liking it, at least I got to experience it and that makes my heart happy!
