The Health Action New Mexico Team

Andrew Baker

Communications/Policy Analysis

I'm a recent graduate of the University of New Mexico, where I earned degrees in Population Health and Political Science; I started working with Health Action New Mexico in September 2019 as part of my studies in the College of Population Health, where I helped out on the Dental Therapy Coalition. Since then, I've taken on a larger role in communications and policy analysis. When I’m not working, I like to keep up with the latest music releases and enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea. I’m excited to work with Health Action and learn more about New Mexico's unique health landscape and how I can help advocate for effective policy!

Gabriella Rivera

Communications/Policy Analysis

My name is Gabby Rivera, and I started with Health Action nearly two years ago as a summer intern. That fall, I took on a more permanent role as bookkeeper and policy assistant, and am now transitioning to a larger policy role. I am studying for a Master's of Public Policy at the University of New Mexico, graduating last May with Bachelor's degrees in Political Science, International Studies, and Honors Interdisciplinary Liberal Arts. Outside of all this, I also love to play rugby and am very involved in efforts to grow the sport here in New Mexico, and ultimately hope to play at the national level. I'm very excited to work with and hear from many of you as we work to make meaningful reform to our NM healthcare system.
