Marti graduated from Heritage Hall High School in Hendersonville, and attended Isothermal Community College in Spindale. She loved to travel and before settling in Greer 15 years ago, she lived in London, Los Angeles, Raleigh and Portland. She was an amazing make-up artist and was a counter manager for Clinique, Lancome, and La Prairie. She adored all animals and had a special place in her heart for pit bulls.
