Martha has been a club level Head Coach / Program Director for more than 15 years, and worked for the Alberta Alpine Ski Association and the Canadian Ski Coaches Federation (CSCF) in coach education and club development. Martha is an accredited Mentor Leader coach and continues to facilitate courses for the CSCF / ACA.
In addition to being Technical Director at the Georgian Peaks Ski Club, Martha is a full-time Project Manager with Parks Canada, writes quirky short stories for entertainment and is often the pig tailed female skier in videos and photo shoots in the Rockies. After more than 20 years living in Banff, Martha now looks over Georgian Bay with her true love, Rocky the pug, and is the mother of three beloved boys.
On the loading ramp to a barn, Martha first learned to ski at the tender age of 2 on an old pair of hand-me-down skis. Her first turn was clean and parallel, and her proud parents and grandparents (all avid skiers) applauded her natural talent until they realized the skis were bent. In an attempt to mitigate her childhood affections for sickly raccoons and squirrels, Martha’s family kept her busy racing at the Georgian Peaks Ski Club, the National Ski Academy and Banff Mountain Academy.
