About Issues


My Three Sons in APS (Click on photo for video)

Good education. In order to obtain statehood, New Mexico  established a public education system. Free and accessible education makes democracy work for all. Athena has been a local educator, student, and parent. But, she also has experience in other states and systems. 

When her oldest son, Anthony, was in 3rd grade, in Florida, she discovered his class was not learning math.  Working with other parent volunteers, school administration, and an existing math curriculum, she led the Math Superstars program, school-wide, for 1st-5th grades during his last two years at the school.

Our schools need to be the best they can be and everyone needs to be a “forever learner.” We have to make sure all our students seek to attain their maximum potential AND offer that opportunity. Athena will bring educators, parents, and students together for a smarter New Mexico

Now and into the 22nd Century. Common sense gun laws protect everyone’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We all want to feel safe in our communities. But what about the future? 

NM laid the groundwork with the Energy Transition Act in 2019 for part of the solution. It engaged community, utilities, and others to enact a planned  reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions across the state from electric generation. 

But we need to MAKE it happen and MANDATE more. Athena will bring her engineering mindset and mom’s determination to the senate floor for a safer New Mexico.

Diverse economy. Athena will take her experiences as a small business owner, start-up entrepreneur, and tech transfer expert to foster collaboration. She knows we have all the ingredients for a diverse economy: three National Labs, three top  universities, and outstanding regional career technical learning centers to develop burgeoning industries.

NM has the opportunity to be the hub of “Green-shoring.” Does our eager new generation see the opportunities? Athena will keep us focused on people, planet, and profit….for ALL.


I love my adopted state!

Together, we can make the long lasting changes we need here.

Send me to Santa Fe to be YOUR voice and vote.

It's been a day of reflection and gratitude today. Thinking of my brother on the one-year anniversary of his passing. And I'm grateful for a safe, healthy family, even if we can't all gather together in person right now. Stay safe, everyone. ... See MoreSee Less

Yes, thousands of you have already voted (thank you!), but there is still a lot of work to do! With Election Day just two weeks away, consider helping out on a campaign if you can. Everyone has something to offer (even cats!). And encourage your friends and family to vote. This year, our lives depend on it! ... See MoreSee Less
