Employed as an attorney and partner at Albuquerque, New Mexico’s McGinn, Carpenter, Montoya & Love, LLC, Kathy Love represents people who are taken advantage of by profit-driven businesses. Dedicated to helping others in and outside of the practice, attorney Kathleen “Kathy” Love is a founding member and belonged on the board of directors for the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance.
Established in 1997, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance seeks to protect and restore the wild lands and wilderness found in New Mexico. The nonprofit does this by offering federal wilderness designations. With members that include scientists, tribal and religious leaders, ranchers, and individuals who live in the state, the organization raises public awareness on numerous issues.
To keep its members up-to-date on important issues pertaining to New Mexico, the organization hosts special events throughout the year. A recent event was the showing of the documentary Mountainfilm on Tour. The educational and inspirational event highlighted themes connected to exploring cultures, promoting adventure, and preserving environments, particularly the four-day Telluride Mountainfilm festival that takes place each Memorial Day weekend.
