About Martha

I am a mom who understands the joys and challenges of the empty nest season. 

As a pastor, educator, and encourager, I have spent years investing in the lives of others. I love Jesus , my husband Matt, my three young adult children, and my church community and they are at the heart of everything I do.

Martha has a heart for helping empty nesters navigate this season of change with joy, purpose, and confidence. I know that this time can be both exciting and overwhelming, and my goal is to come alongside parents and provide them with the support they need to thrive in this new season.

Through my own personal experience and years of ministering to families, I love helping parents transition to the empty nest season. I understand the emotions that come with this change and I am committed to providing support and encouragement every step of the way.

My approach is relational and personalized.  I take the time to listen and understand each individual’s unique situation, and then provide practical advice and encouragement. my desire is to empower empty nesters to communicate effectively, strengthen their relationships, and embrace this season of change with hope and optimism.

Whether you’re struggling with finding a new purpose, feeling disconnected from your spouse, or simply looking for someone to walk alongside you on your journey, I want to be someone you can trust to offer wise counsel and a listening ear. I want you to  feel seen, heard, and empowered to embrace this new season of life.

“Drinking more water and not coffee and cokes.”

“I love to just go, go, go.”

“Its 6 months, it’s a year. You have the rest of your life. “

“Being around older women to give you perspectives is so nice.”
