Marta is fueled by the idea of a compassionate and sustainable society. She is a committed civil servant and has worked for government at the local, provincial, federal, and international level on wide-ranging issues. Marta’s work has included evaluating outreach initiatives in Vancouver’s downtown eastside, drafting the Ghana AIDS Commission’s annual programme of work and budget, leading a census team for the enumeration of collective dwellings such as prisons and shelters, and coordinating home stays for international students.
Since 2009, Marta has been applying her strategic planning and policy skills to the City of Port Moody. Her passion for sustainability has led her to chair the corporate green team, organize the public consultation process and drafting of the Community Sustainability Plan, and plan for carbon neutrality for the City.
Marta has a genuine thirst for learning and holds a Masters in Public Policy, a Masters Certificate in Project Management, and a B.A. in Sociology. In her spare time, Marta loves to play ultimate Frisbee, sing in her community choir, and spend as much time as possible in the outdoors.
