Carolyn Graham joins New Mexico Magazine as CEO. Graham has worked for regional and special interest magazines for more than 20 years and has been a fan of New Mexico Magazine since she was old enough to read. She grew up in Las Cruces and earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from New Mexico State University. After graduation, she moved to Carson City, Nevada, to become a newspaper reporter but soon shifted her focus, joining the editorial staff at Nevada Magazine, the state tourism publication. She later moved to Southern California, where she helmed a regional parenting publication. Most recently, she served as editor in chief of New Mexico Journey, the AAA member publication published by the Auto Club of Southern California, where she also worked on other titles, including Westways, which goes to more than 4.2 million households in Southern California. Along with her two children and husband, she’s eager to return to her New Mexico roots, where she will never grow tired of desert sunsets and green chile.
