“Push harder than yesterday, if you want a different tomorrow”

Karen Martinez
I was born and raised in Mexico City but moved to Gainesville, Georgia at the age of 14 but I go back every little chance that I get. Being fluent in Spanish has giving me more career opportunities.

My journey has led me to go from criminal attorney assistant, to banker, to medical assistant and now I’m blessed to be part of Russell Petersen’s team.

I have 2 children who keep my hands full all the time. The reason why I am always trying to give my best is because I want a better world for them and I know I can’t change it but I can do my part. I’m trying to raise my kids the way I was raised and I want them to learn both cultures Mexican and American and become bilinguals, but I especially want them to grow with this saying from my father “ Treat people how you will like to be treated because If you do good you will always have good as return, remember you don’t want to ride the Karma bus”. This saying has marked my life and that’s why I always try to put a smile at any “ball” that life throws me.

I love cooking and making cakes!
