Meet The Team
Each member of the De La Vega's management team is committed to bringing you the best dining experience possible in Las Cruces. Please feel free to give us feedback whether your experience was perfect, or could have been better.
Tom and Jeanine Springer met in the town of Farmington, NM. Married now for over 35 years, they are parents to daughters Ashley and Jessie Springer. Together, they are a phenomenal team and the backbone to the management staff at the Pecan Grill. Tom is an avid outdoorsman and Jeanine enjoys spending all of her free time with her two horses, Turtle and Notchie. You can find them most nights enjoying one of Chef's signature dishes in the bar. Feel free to stop and say hi!
Ashley holds a degree in Journalism from the Walter Cronkite School at Arizona State University. She previously worked for four different publications in both the Scottsdale, AZ and Albuquerque, NM areas.
Christopher brings "hands on" experience to De La Vega’s. Starting as a bartender in a local pub in 2002 he continued to hone his trade gathering knowledge and people skills.
Colette came to the Pecan Grill by recommendation through the HRTM school at NMSU.
