Zulema V. Echerivel-Felix

Zulema (Sue) Echerivel-Felix was born in Chihuahua, Mexico and immigrated to the United States at an early age. Her parents raised their seven children in Arizona but with strong ties back to Mexico. All summer breaks and holidays were spent in Chihuahua with grandparents and extended family. Here the deep roots of farming and ranching would one day surface in Sue’s cooking style and abilities. Home grown vegetables and beef/lamb laid the foundation of Sue’s simple, fresh, home style cooking.

Sue had a very successful career at Hughes/Raytheon, which spanned 35 years. She held numerous executive level positions which included Program Manager, Director of Finance, Operations, Supply Chain and Quality. Sue has a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration and several advance certifications in Program Management and Business Management. Sue is married to Raymond Felix and they had two daughters. Their eldest daughter Zulema was killed in a car accident in 2008 and their other daughter Francesca is currently employed by Raytheon. Sue and Ray are raising their twin granddaughters and are active in breeding, training and racing quarter horses.
