Morgan Honeycutt is a New Mexico native with a life-long passion for helping people. Her legal career has involved immigration work with refugees and asylum seekers, criminal defense as a Public Defender in Albuquerque and family law. A partner at Walther Bennett Mayo Honeycutt PC, Morgan finds that working with people in crisis is both an extremely rewarding and moving experience, although not an easy one. Her legal work translates to the kind of work Kitchen Angels does for the local community such as serving underprivileged populations. In such a capacity this requires dedication, creativity, tenacity, and a deep understanding of human suffering. In her free time, Morgan walks her dog, tries to convince her cat to wear a leash, reads voraciously, and enjoys everything Santa Fe has to offer with her large, rowdy group of friends. As somebody who is dealing with a very ill, aging parent Morgan says “I have a new and different appreciation for the kind of work that Kitchen Angels does in Santa Fe, and I so look forward to contributing what I can to this organization’s bold and loving mission.”
