In the 1800s Martha's family settled in California, and that is where she raised her son, met her husband Jim Britell and where one of her step-sons and his family still live.
Jim’s family is from Utica, New York, so he always dreamed of living in the Adirondacks. Because of their love of NYS' North Country they now live in Malone. For a West-Coast girl who grew up in an Orange grove, it has come as a surprise how much Martha loves Winter!
In her very first job Martha helped people obtain their US Social Security benefits. After years of working in community and economic development, she is passionate about helping communities thrive. Her desire to help people and give back to her community lead to Rotary, first as an active member and past-president of the Malone Rotary Club, and now as a member of an online club.
