Martha first moved to Chico in 1979 to attend Chico State where she stayed for five years, before moving back to the Bay Area. Many lifetimes later, she moved again to Chico in 2003 and has been here ever since. She started working at Inspire in 2013 when her own daughter, Olivia, was a sophomore here where she majored in engineering. In 2017, Martha married her husband, Mark, whom she had been friends with for 40 years. They live with their much loved dog, Tucker, and enjoy cooking, gardening, hanging out with friends and watching Netflix. Just your basic, boring middle aged couple!
