CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Gov. Brian Sandoval has appointed a Las Vegas businesswoman to the Nevada Board of Education after its vice president resigned.

Sandoval announced Monday that he’d appointed Felicia Ortiz to fill the vacancy left by Allison Serafin.

Ortiz was born and raised in New Mexico and earned a Masters in Business Administration. She’s president and CEO of the Las Vegas-based business consulting firm PM Solutions Consulting.

Ortiz is also involved in the Latino Network of Southern Nevada, the Latin Chamber of Commerce and other organizations. She’ll represent residents who live in southern Nevada’s 3rd Congressional District and fill a term that expires next January.

Serafin resigned in December to avoid a conflict of interest as she pursues work with a charter school organization that may contract with the state.
