Martina Huntington

Martina is an MPA graduate from Brigham Young University and an HR assistant for Lehi City. She is also a mommy in a wheelchair to three little babes. She loves spending time outdoors with her family, chatting with her friends, connecting people, and getting involved with the community. Now I Can is one of her favorite organizations because of the positive impact it has made in the lives of so many children with disabilities–it helps people reach their full potential and live life to its fullest. She is an advocate for the disability community and a cheerleader for everyone. She believes that we should learn as much as we can so we can do as much as we can to help others. When she’s not staying abreast on city topics or advocating for the disability community, she enjoys chasing her wild babes, hand cycling, and monoskiing.
