Meet the Candidate
Dawn has made her home in New Mexico since 1989, mostly living in the Southern rural communities of San Miguel and La Mesa for the past 25 years. Most of those years were spent as a single mother working multiple jobs and attending the university. She studied English at New Mexico State University and has earned two Oriental Dance Instructor Certifications in 2005 and 2008, while in Giza, Egypt. Dawn currently owns her own business as a distributor for nutritional products.
Concerns for the health, wellness, and the prosperity of others, especially those in the smaller communities often limited in resources, has driven her to dedicate more than 15 years of her life as a Dance and Fitness Instructor in numerous Dona Ana Community Centers free of charge. Her love and commitment to the community has fueled her passion to try and preserve the true traditional values of New Mexico, while embracing a bright New Mexico future!
