I have always enjoyed working with businesses to tackle their marketing objectives. In 1996, I felt the desire to run my own business. I started Martin Direct Marketing by purchasing Money Mailer of Greenwood. In 2002, I added the Town Planner Community Calendar to our company’s marketing products. I also publish the Indiana Golf & Travel Guide and sell advertising for the Indiana DNR publications and the Center Grove Sports Magazine.

Family Husband David, Sons Michael & Nicholas, and dog Maggie

Born and raised in Greenwood. I am married to my husband, David, for more than 30 years. I have worked part-time as an office manager for John since January of 2001. My duties include clerical, accounts receivable as well as customers’ ad layout/design proofing.

I have particularly enjoyed my position which allowed me to participate in my boys’ school and athletic activities during their elementary and high school years. My oldest son, Michael, has served in the US Army and is now currently in the National Guard Reserves, while my youngest, Nicholas, graduated from Ball State with a degree in computer graphics design.

I enjoy working with our clients and staying connected in the local community events.
