Finance & Operations Manager
As a lifelong North Carolinian, Martha completed her undergraduate degree at UNC-Chapel Hill with a double-major in chemistry and Spanish before earning her law degree from Wake Forest University. During her time at WFU, she worked in the Community Law & Business Clinic, which sparked her interest in addressing legal questions for small business start-ups and nonprofits.
Post-graduation, she negotiated contracts and budgets with clinical research sites for a few years before following a unique opportunity back to her hometown of Salisbury. During her 6+ years at Carolina Malt House, she dove into the world of finance and operations for a growing start-up business. She brings this knowledge base along with her enthusiasm for conserving and improving our community’s watershed to her work at RiverLink. Outside of the office, you can find Martha enjoying the natural beauty of Asheville and surrounding areas by kayaking, hiking, and learning to fly fish.
