After almost 40 years of experience in serving in the U.S. Army and in corporate management, including 32 years with National Grid, an international gas and electric utility, Marty moved to Summerville in 2009 from Long Island, New York.  His vast experience included outreach activities such as managing corporate blood drives, working with employees within an employee assistance program and is currently the Clinic Manager of the Medical Outreach Clinic of Summerville, Inc. which is a free medical clinic serving the poor and uninsured with basic healthcare.  Additionally, for the past three years Marty has served as the Director of Outreach for Ashley Ridge Church, which includes the programs “Expanding the Table”, a mobile soup kitchen serving the homeless and poor in the Summerville community, along with coordinating the Change for a Dollar program that each week directly meets some tangible need of someone in the community who is struggling financially.  Using his past experience in the military coupled with a passion for serving others, Marty is a welcome addition to the board.
