I was raised in Alamogordo and attended school in this community from elementary to high school.  I graduated from Alamogordo High School and attended Western New Mexico University for one and half years, I continued my education while working full time and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Indiana University (SB).

I am happily married to Edward McDonald and we have five children, grandchildren, and a generation to come that will forever keep us young at heart.

 As a resident of Alamogordo, New Mexico, you always have an extended family including neighbors, classmates, church members, old and new friends from near and far. They are people you never forget and make this community an amazing place to get together for reunions.  We always pick up where we left off and have a great time.  

My professional experiences include a little bit of everything from clerical to a manager of employee benefits.  I find that helping people makes a job worth doing.

I have devoted my time and energy to organizations that help our community, schools, businesses, families, children, and education for a more resilient town.  I love working hard for the citizens of District 5 to help beautify our neighborhoods.  I enjoy working the polls at election time and attending Chamber of Commerce meetings, just to know what is happening with people around our community.  I was involved with the 2020 Census, working with people throughout the state as well as with the Otero Census Committee in Alamogordo.

I love to walk, watch sports, travel, hang out with family and friends and enjoy good food.
