Martha works in the main office where she helps with attendance, the health office and keeping track of textbooks, among other things. She grew up in the Bay Area and attended college in Chico.

Martha has worked in the restaurant and landscaping industries, but most of her work experience is in office management. Her daughter, Liv, is now 17 and a senior at Inspire! Martha lives with Liv, her husband Mark and Tucker the dog. Some say she is a really good cook…Martha, not the dog.
