Marthe Leach is a native of Shaker Heights, Ohio and has called Chicago home for the past decade. After graduating from Indiana University, Marthe moved to Chicago to pursue a career in journalism. She interned at a local magazine and small record label before realizing that her true passion was in education and social justice. She joined Teach For America and spent over 7 years in the classroom as a special education and science teacher at the high school and middle school levels. Marthe left the classroom to join Braven as the program manager, where she oversees the student experience. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, and seeing as much live music as possible.
