SANTA FE — The New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services Department (ALTSD) announces that Antoinette Vigil has joined the department as Deputy Cabinet Secretary.
Vigil comes to ALTSD after serving as the Deputy Cabinet Secretary at the Tourism Department since 2019. She brings 20+ years of public service at the state, municipal and county levels, in varied levels of administration of projects and programs. In addition to her tenure at the Tourism Department, Vigil also served as a Director of Economic, Business and Tourism Development for Sandoval County and has worked with the state’s Economic Development Department.
“I am grateful to continue working alongside Antoinette; we are a dynamic duo,” Secretary Designate Jen Paul Schroer said. “Her time and work with me at the Tourism Department was steadfast and principled, and I have every faith in her ability to carry that over to best serve the Aging and Long-Term Services Department’s constituents.”
“When I give thought to my career growth and path, I seek to find inspiration in what I do and this new venture is an area I seek to invest in for myself and others,” Deputy Secretary Antoinette Vigil said. “I am confident that I bring the right experience pivotal to the position. Aging affects patterns of economic growth for our communities, and I relish the opportunity to be a part of the team that is focused on providing adequate resources for older adults – in my book, this is another sector of meaningful work. I am pleased to be entrusted to lead alongside Secretary Schroer, as a member of the team to marshal the department’s service forward.”
