Our Foundation

Founder

Erika Martiń is a first generation Latina-Americana. Her father is from Puebla, Mexico and her mother is from Santa Isabel, Puerto Rico. Erika holds an M.B.A in Energy and Sustainability, a B.S. in Meteorology, and an A.A. in Communications and Media Studies.   


While working as a Broadcast Meteorologist and reporting on severe weather outbreaks across the country, she became interested in sustainable practices during extreme weather events. She decided to change her graduate major from an M.S. in Meteorology to an M.B.A. in Energy and Sustainability. Erika knew, if she could develop a sustainable framework and acquire the skills that could help her convey the true price of natural disasters, she'd help bridge the value-action gap. Her final graduate project was on sludge management and waste water treatment. Her professional affiliations include: NAHJ, NECEC, NEWEA, NWS, SKYWARN, WEF.  Erika works with organizations to help raise ASD awareness. 


Erika launched Good Earth Foundation in her home state of CT. Learn more about Erika @erikamartin.com
