Bio:

Debora Martin began her career at Metropolitan State University of Denver in 1980. She worked in Accounting and Human Resources, before joining the Department of Human Services in office management. With more than 35 years at the university, she has seen huge changes in everything from student programs and diversity, to the number of buildings on campus to Denver itself. “The most rewarding experience at MSU Denver has been helping students achieve their goal of graduation,” she said. However, as much as she enjoys it, she is looking forward to retiring soon. She plans to move to a warmer climate and raise tortoises. “I’ve always loved turtles, and I hope to raise either African spurred tortoises or red footed tortoises from Brazil. I’ve had both, but Colorado isn’t an ideal climate for them,” she said.
