Marta is a native of the Rio Grande Valley in far South Texas. A second generation Texan, she grew up in a migrant family traveling across the United States to work in the fields. The eldest of nine children, she graduated from Mercedes High School (home of the Fighting Tigers) in 1976. Once she graduated, she boldly looked for ways to get out of the economically-strained Rio Grande Valley. Finally settling down in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area of North Texas in 1984, she found herself at home. Although raising her three daughters by herself was a struggle, her desire to be more than a government statistic is what empowered her to become the courageous woman she is today.
