Born and raised in New Jersey, Martine attended undergraduate school at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in biology. She is a past member of TriBeta, a biology honor society, and was on TCNJ’s Dean’s List.

Her experience in the medical field began as an EMT volunteer, and after sustaining a sports injury, she ultimately chose a career as a physician assistant (PA). She furthered her education by attending the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (Rutgers University), where she received a Master of Physician Assistant Studies.

A PA is a nationally certified and state-licensed medical professional who can diagnose and treat, perform physical exams, take medical histories, order and interpret tests, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions. For several years as a PA, she has focused on orthopedics, where her experience includes total joint care, sports medicine, fracture care, and spine.

In her spare time, she loves to travel, spend time with family and friends, and she sometimes even enjoys a nice day biking around town. Last but certainly not least, she also participates in the annual National Multiple Sclerosis Society fundraising events in hopes of finding a cure one day.
