Best Thing About the Job: One part I enjoy is you never know what the day may bring. The variety of our job duties means the task of the day is always different and could be anywhere in the state. I also enjoy showing the young girls in our state there are female conservation officers and if it’s something they are interested in, it is possible.
What made you want to be a NM Game Warden? I have always loved the outdoors and being in nature. Becoming a Game Warden lined up with my views, our purpose is to conserve our natural resources and wildlife. I want to help ensure the children of our state can enjoy the great outdoors as I have.
Special Interest: Education, Law Enforcement
One piece of advice for anyone interested in becoming a NM Game Warden. Be willing to push yourself, no matter how uncomfortable or unfamiliar it is. Having the ability to adapt and learn will help you with any situation. Every Game Warden has their first bear in a tree, law enforcement contact, or Hunter Education class but those that approach them with motivation and an open mind will exceed.
