President Paul Migliore

My wife and I are new members of the Picacho Hills community, having moved here recently from Colorado. I served for 18 years as treasurer of the 731-member West Woods Ranch homeowners association in Arvada, CO and for 6 years on the Berrenda Creek Ranch Board near Lake Valley, NM. Both organizations were in their formative years and faced major challenges. I believe I was instrumental in their achievement of positive outcomes. Many life experiences inform my ideas and judgements. I designed high-performance aircraft for the U.S. Navy, taught aeronautical engineering classes at two universities, was a licensed general engineer and general contractor in California, was a senior researcher and project manager at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, operated several small businesses and built or remodeled many homes and offices. My interests are beautification of the community, increasing PHPOA membership, developing and maintaining a constructive and mutually beneficial relationship with the soon-to-be formed Picacho Hills Community Club.

Vice-President Dave Zeemont

My wife, Lynn, and I are transplants from Rockland County, New York. I spent most of my working career as an independent general insurance agent and broker. Since retiring, I have become involved in volunteer work, having been past president of PHPOA, current president of Coronado Ridge NA, president and board member of Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary, as well as many volunteer roles resulting in recognition by Temple Beth-El as Volunteer of the Year. I spend much of my time as a volunteer driver for the Disabled American Veterans Transportation Network, taking area veterans to their medical appointments in Las Cruces and El Paso.

Secretary Margie Herberger

I spent 38 wonderful years teaching English Language Arts to grades 5 – 12 in public schools, then became an instructor of pre-service teachers at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. As a Fellow in the National Writing Project, I taught writing skills to teachers of all disciplines and became a staff development trainer. In retirement, Dave and I chose to leave the snowy weather behind and moved to Las Cruces. I taught at DACC for a few semesters, subbed for LCPS, but now am truly retired. I take pleasure in golf and a wide variety of volunteer activities, most of which bring me right back to my real loves…reading and writing.  My passion is creating clear communication in a world that truly needs it.

Treasurer – position currently open


Valerie Heller

My husband, Phil, and I have owned a home in Picacho Hills since 2006.  I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Madison with degrees in finance and accounting.  During my 37 year banking career (33 years with US Bank) my focus was corporate banking and commercial real estate project lending and eventually management of various real estate banking offices in several states.

Tom Hennigh

My wife, Anna and I moved here in April 2017, as I had accepted a job with the Sheriff’s Office. I am currently assigned as the Sheriff’s Office Community Liaison.  I coordinate all community meetings/events & activities that the Sheriff’s Office is involved in throughout the County.   I had retired after 35 years in Oklahoma Law Enforcement.  I am also retired from the United States Navy Reserves after 28 years.  Over the years I have volunteered with several community organizations and participated in many community projects.  Some of my volunteering included Police Youth Explorer Sponsor, Police Sentinel Coordinator for Citizen Volunteers, and 28 years with the local Youth Rodeo Committee.  I have served on several boards including the Lions Club, Local Chapter of the American Red Cross, County Jail Library Board, local Police Foundation, and County Sheriffs Foundation as Chair.  I hope to make a difference serving the PHPOA.

Kelly Lopez

Being a native Las Crucen, it has been a pleasure to meet so many new residents in Picacho Hills. We are so blessed to have such a diverse neighborhood. I encourage everyone to meet your neighbors! Before joining this Board, I had no idea what PHPOA did. I now have a grand appreciation for all the community projects that we are responsible for. This is our community, and we all need to band together!

As a member of the Marketing Committee, I am responsible for creating and coordinating the ads for Picacho Living magazine. Soon, this communication will be adding Instagram and Facebook posts to keep everyone updated. “Like” Picacho Living magazine on Facebook and stay tuned to updates and events.

Janis Paul

An El Paso native, I spent most of my life in El Paso. I worked in advertising for over 25 years, which included 15 years co-owning and operating a Full-Service Advertising Agency and Trade Show Display company. In 2004, I changed my focus to Real Estate, which continues to this day with my licenses in New Mexico and Texas.

Throughout my life, I have been committed to community service. The most rewarding has been volunteering and serving as a Member of the Board of Directors of the YWCA, Paso del Norte Region, volunteering for Animal Rescue League and Humane Society-El Paso, organizations that benefit women, children and animals. Since moving to Picacho Hills in 2018, we have met many wonderful people and enjoy golf among other activities. I look forward to serving on the PHPOA Board.

Lynn Zeemont

Dave and I, along with Sequoia, our dog, moved to Las Cruces from the suburbs of New York eleven years ago. Sequoia was the first to learn the true meaning of cacti.  I had my own business in the stone industry, representing stone importers from around the world, as well as a direct sales business of products to the fabrication and restoration industry.  By joining the LGA, I have met the best of friends and have enjoyed serving the organization as Treasurer and President. By serving on the PHTPA board, I hope to help expand the pickleball program to many of the residents. I look forward to the transition of PHCC to the Community Club of Picacho Hills and meeting new neighbors and enjoying additional activities and events in our neighborhood.
