Prior to UWCNM, Larissa worked in the mortgage industry for over 8 years. With a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Texas State University, she is excited to get back into non-profit work and provide support to our community. As a born and raised Texan, Larissa spent many vacations visiting New Mexico for the incredible skiing. Every time she visited, she wanted to stay and truly felt at home. In December 2012, New Mexico welcomed her with open arms. In her spare time, Larissa enjoys activities such as rock climbing, hiking, skiing, yoga, or fly fishing.
