I’ve since built a successful career as a design leader working on software products with global impact, and the inflection point for this can be traced directly back to the work Martha did. It was always clear that she cares about people first, and has an innate ability to thoughtfully bring together people in a way that becomes more than the sum of their individual parts. —Jason, Principal Creative Director, Microsoft.
