Boe, a Santa Fe attorney, assumes the role from Karen Moses, the editor of the Albuquerque Journal. Moses will stay with NMFOG as a member of the executive committee.

Boe has a degree in Science Journalism from Iowa State University and a law degree from the University of Iowa.

She began her career as a copy editor at the Corpus Christi Caller Times. Her work experience includes time as a public information officer, copy editor and reporter, and attorney.
