Martha grew up in Spokane, Washington and then journeyed east to attend Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. As a student, she majored in geology, was a member of the debate team, and played rugby. She also studied abroad in Australia where she examined billion-year-old rocks and cheered for the Wallabies as they won the World Cup. After graduation, she began her career in higher education and the Pacific Northwest soon lured her home. Martha has worked in college admission, registration, and advising for the past ten years and is thrilled that it led her to Puget Sound.

Martha loves living in Tacoma where she is so close to the Sound and national parks. When not working, you’ll most likely find her with her nose in a book, sitting in a dark movie theater, or admiring the view along Ruston Way.
