Martina joined the All Souls staff as Office Administrator in August, 2016. Prior to joining our staff, Martina founded a self-directed learning center for young people throughout Southeastern Connecticut. During that time she also graduated from Goddard College with a Masters of Arts in Community Education. She has 10 years of experience working in education as an after-school program coordinator, youth organizer, sexual health educator, preschool teacher, and tutor. She is passionately committed to “slow dwelling” – the idea that human life doesn’t have to be busy, busy, busy, and at odds with the natural environment. When Martina is not office administrating she is weeding, canning, cooking, sewing, knitting, and taking 10 minute plunges into the quarry behind her house – weather permitting.
