    AnMarie Martin is an extraordinary, charismatic woman from San Juan, Puerto Rico. At age 36, she decided to leave a successful and lucrative career in corporate America with Emeritus Corporation to pursue her life-long dream of working in criminal justice. A survivor of childhood abuse, she always longed to serve and protect individuals who could not protect themselves. Martin is currently employed with the Hall County Sheriff's Office Special Operations / A.D.V.A.N.C.E. (Avoiding Drugs Violence and Negative Choices Early) program. She is one of five deputies who facilitates the A.D.V.A.N.C.E. curriculum in the local school system. Community service is woven into the fabric of Martin's life. In her spare time she mentors girls, advocates for women's rights, and serves the Gainesville community in many other ways. She has delivered numerous speeches and presentations, sharing information on healthy choices, drug prevention, sex-trafficking, and goal mapping. In 2014 Martin was one of the featured speakers during the Women's Weekend annual summit at the First Baptist Church of Gainesville. Additionally, she facilitated workshops during the "Empowerment Day for Young Women" which was organized by two Hall County schools. Lastly, Martin was nominated to be one of the 2014 Community Heroes by WomenSource, a local non-profit organization whose motto is "to encourage the personal and professional success for all women in Northeast Georgia." She is a valiant woman who tells her story with vigor, humor and sincerity. When asked about her greatest accomplishments in life, she speaks about raising two beautiful daughters with her husband. One daughter studies at University of California, Berkeley; the other is pursuing a degree at Florida State University. We are pleased to have her as our 2015 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Convocation speaker.
