Martha’s many professional accomplishments reveal her keen intelligence and deep commitment to excellence and service. Martha not only knows all things numbers, she patiently communicates her financial acumen to those more adept with manipulating words than figures. She has a quiet humor that makes others comfortable asking what otherwise might feel like dumb questions. Martha has been instrumental in making sure the Outlook’s financial house is in order and we are deeply grateful for her wisdom, grace and kindness.
Martha is married to Gary and has a young adult son, Will. When she is not crunching numbers, she is cheering on the Colts or swinging a golf club with ever increasing skill.
The Presbyterian Outlook Foundation is governed by a board of 15 directors. The Presbyterian Outlook is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3), funded through subscription sales, ad sales and donations.
