Martine’s a self-described reformed scientist who can’t seem to shake the science.
She has a BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with a split minor in Chemistry/Math/Physics and Fine Art from the University of Arizona. She dabbled with art, but missed her intellectual side, so she did an internship in animal behavior, and then took a job at a psychophysics lab in West Philly. She later enrolled in the Masters of City Planning program at U Penn, and began employment at the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, where she works on policies and projects related to physical development and the environment.
More recently, she’s discovered the intellectual benefits of hard athletics –tenacity, focus, and calm. “My most recent role models are people who seem to have it all together, who explore all facets of their lives, and who bring intensity to everything they do,” she said.
