Loral Butler is a Sr. Vice President with New Mexico Bank & Trust and serves as the Wealth Advisory Services Market Manager.
Loral was born and raised in Chicago, moved to Albuquerque in 1975, and is a graduate of Sandia High School. She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree from Winona State University in Minnesota and quickly moved back to New Mexico for more favorable weather and the state's beautiful landscape. Although her extended family now lives in Texas ... she definitely considers New Mexico home.
Loral is happy and proud to be the mother of her two grown boys, Shaun & Timothy, who are both attending UNM. She enjoys being outdoors in her backyard garden, walking, hiking and watching sunsets. She crochets to relax and is also an avid reader and enjoys her monthly book club night with her girlfriends. Loral is very active in the community serving on the boards of Samaritan Counseling Center and Amy Biehl High School Foundation and also serves as a Partner in Philanthropy of the Albuquerque Community Foundation.
Loral loves to dance but is quickly learning the difference between dancing (moving to the music and having fun) and competitive dancing (learning dance steps, practice, learning more dance steps, practice, learning dips, twirls and spins, practice, listening to the same song over and over again, practice, and of course having fun.) She is really enjoying the professional dance instruction from her partner, Jonathan Neiser at Enchantment Dancing - he has the moves and is the best!!
Although Loral's close circle of family and friends have not yet been personally affected by Alzheimer's disease, some of her clients are, and it saddens her to see the effect of the disease on them and the toll it takes on their loved ones. Loral feels that being a part of an event that helps to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Alzheimer's is a very good thing and she welcomes the opportunity.
Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we can find a way to change the course of this disease.
