Taos Ski Valley Resort Sales: Lara Brown, Director of Sales for the multi-season Taos Ski Valley resort, will return to the show to offer additional commentary about her mission at TSV, of engaging individual and group sales business for The Blake hotel. This unique slopeside destination, which is at the heart of the mountain resort’s renaissance, connects the iconic mountain with a vibrant cultural journey. Lara will discuss the vision that she and her sales team bring to their work, including a desire to make Taos a place where people come to find inspiration in the wilderness with all of the amenities of a world-class resort. Lara and her colleagues are dedicated to helping guests who come to the mountain resort, plan the ultimate special event—from an executive retreat to a group ski outing, as well as to a perfect wedding, year-round. TSV offers meeting spaces, inside and out, that invite creativity and nature to co-mingle. TSV’s “traditional” boardroom overlooks a river, and the “standard” conference space features mountain views, while the resort’s wedding sites offer 360-degree views, where nature is the backdrop.

Taos Behavioral Health Report to the Community: Simon Torrez, the Chief Executive Officer of Taos Behavioral Health (TBH), will join the show in the first of a two-part interview designed to speak to the nonprofit’s mission of providing comprehensive behavioral health services to individuals, families, and groups, to support them in developing positive behaviors and making life-affirming choices. With the largest licensed and credentialed behavioral staff in Northern New Mexico, TBH is well respected and known for its dedication to helping Taos become a better, safer, and less violent community by serving at-risk youth and adults in need of guidance and counseling. Rey and Simon will discuss the good works of TBH, including the Familia Y Mundo youth program, as well as the case management focus of the nonprofit’s Comprehensive Community Support Services. Simon joined Taos Behavioral Health as the business manager, and he took over the CEO role in September 2013. He is a homegrown Taoseño with rock-solid discipline from his military service—smarts from his years as a business manager—and the heart of a dedicated family man. He is delighted to be helping build nonviolence skills in Taos.
