Ms. Martinez was born and raised in Chicago, where her lifelong passion for competitive swimming brought her to the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) to become a Division I student-athlete. There she competed as a swimmer during her undergraduate studies while pursuing a bachelor's degree in nursing.
Ms. Martinez graduated and began her career in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Although she loved her neonatal and infant patients, she found that her passion truly lied in caring for the pediatric population throughout the lifespan. She then moved on to then working in the Pediatric Emergency Department for the remainder of her time as an RN until obtaining her doctoral degree in nursing, also from UIC.
After many trips to Eau Claire visiting her husband's family, they decided to leave Chicago and officially move to Wisconsin. Ms. Martinez now lives in Altoona with her husband and their dog, Bella. She is excited to experience this new area and meet the many wonderful families in this community.
