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 Mike Slover

I recently retired (March 2015) after 41 years in the landscape construction industry.  My first 20 years in the business were spent in Southern California (LA area) doing high-end residential and small commercial landscape installation projects including maintenance.  My last 21 years were focused on large commercial projects (streetscapes, parks, shopping malls, sports fields, office buildings) in the Denver, CO area.  Upon retirement, Candy (my wife of 40 years) and I decided (after semi-lengthy research) to relocate to Las Cruces.  We purchased a home in the Fairway Village subdivision of Picacho Hills and made the move along with our 3 dogs in May, 2015.  Shortly thereafter, we became members at PHCC where we’ve met many new friends and play golf several times a week.  I also enjoy working around the house and am always looking for my next home improvement project.

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.

Kelly Lopez

I am new to Picacho Hills and being a native Las Crucen, it has been a pleasure to meet so many new residents. We are so blessed to have such a diverse neighborhood. I encourage everyone to meet your neighbors!

I am currently serving on the Welcome Committee. 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!

I am also 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.

Judy Lubeck

My husband, Ray and I moved here six years ago after 35 years in San Diego, Ca.  I sold residential real estate in the San Diego area for 25 years and am now enjoying retirement here in Las Cruces.  I love golfing, travel and enjoying good times with friends. It’s a pleasure to work with the PHPOA Board at keeping you informed and making positive improvements to our wonderful neighborhood.

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.
