Meet Nella

Join thousands of women from across New Mexico who stand with Nella!



A third generation New Mexican, I was born in Albuquerque and lived for most of my childhood in a home near the intersection of Lomas and Monroe with my seven siblings and parents - Pete and Nancy Domenici. I began my education at Our Lady of Fatima, where I learned the values I hold today. I am the devoted mother of two, step-mom of four, and the wife of a Navy Veteran. My family’s roots run deep in New Mexico and it is here that I have always returned. My husband Pat and I enjoy our family home in New Mexico that we have owned for nearly twenty years.

Like my father and mother, I have been a warrior for those who most need an advocate: for women competing in academics or business, for families dealing with mental illness, and for those without access to quality healthcare. I have also been a champion of improving the education of our youth in underserved communities.

I understand the importance of hard work, like most New Mexicans. I waited tables to help pay for my undergraduate degree from Georgetown University. While holding down a full time job, I paid my way through night school at Georgetown Law. I also paid for Harvard Business School, graduating as a Baker Scholar, top 5% of the class, while nine months pregnant.


I began my career at the bottom and worked my way up through the complex finance world, where I eventually served as CFO for Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund. Before joining Bridgewater, I held senior positions at Citadel and Credit Suisse First Boston. I have advised, invested in, grown, and led many companies - in addition to serving on public company boards. The industries I have worked in are vast and include areas such as healthcare, AI, food service, lodging, commercial real estate, mortgage lending, and consumer products. These companies have ranged from small family-owned businesses, to rapidly growing venture-backed enterprises, to a Fortune 200 company.

I am uniquely prepared and qualified to fight for a significantly improved New Mexican economy. My professional experience and education enables me to deeply understand taxation, inflation, setting and managing huge budgets and creating incentives and benefits that serve employees, and attract new businesses and entrepreneurs.

New Mexico is blessed with abundant natural resources, cultural diversity, rich traditions, hard-working people, and leading national laboratories and military installations. But sadly, our leaders in Washington and Santa Fe have failed us. The cost of living is up, we have a crime and drug crisis, the border is wide open, and our public education system is leaving our kids behind.


We are clearly on the wrong track. We can and must do better.


That’s why I am running for the United States Senate.
