About Us

Santa Fean magazine has a nearly fifty-year history of sharing stories of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico. The newly envisioned Santa Fean was relaunched in August 2020 by dedicated Santa Feans under the guidance of owners Kelly and Martin Haug.

Kelly Haug
Owner/Publisher, The Essential Guide and Santa Fean

Kelly grew up in Western Pennsylvania. She has a BS in environmental science and a Master in Resource Law (MRLS). For nearly two decades, she lived in the West before she and her husband moved to Santa Fe, his hometown. She is delighted they can raise their two daughters in a multicultural city with extended family nearby. Descended from a long line of small-business owners, Kelly is enthusiastic about contributing to and building community.

Martin was born and raised in Santa Fe, and his family’s ties to the city go back many generations. He holds a BA in psychology and has been a small-business owner for several decades. He is passionate about Santa Fe and honoring the cosmopolitan, ever-evolving city it has become.
