Plant With Purpose is in a season of growth. With that, we are excited to introduce you to our new finance assistant, Miguel Martinez! Miguel brings many assets to the team including his heart to help others, his love for the outdoors, and educational background in finance. He’s already implemented Spanish speaking lunches on Wednesday (join us if you’re in the neighborhood). Help us welcome Miguel!
My name is Miguel Martinez. For years, I have dreamt about being part of an organization like Plant With Purpose. Since my parents introduced me to the realities of poverty in Mexico, all I have wanted to do is help those in need. To this day, my parents continue to help people in Tecate, Baja California and I know it is my calling to continue in their footsteps.
I discovered Plant With Purpose from a friend who formerly worked for the organization and told me about the finance assistant position. Everything about Plant With Purpose aligns with my beliefs, values, love for nature, and passion to help others. With my education in finance from San Diego State University and experience from The Rock Church of San Diego, I am tasked to help with the day-to-day operations of the organization and find ways to help the organization grow.
Apart from work, I consider myself an adventurous person. The things I enjoy most involve the outdoors in one way or another. Camping is probably my favorite (when having the proper gear and equipment). Being out in the wilderness and away from distractions allows me to be in tune with God’s presence and His amazing creation. Second to camping, I have a passion for mountain biking, especially downhill mountain biking. I love the exercise, challenge, and rush of adrenaline from speeding down rocky hills. So far, I have only had one hard fall and when it happened I laughed and thought it was fun. The third thing I love to do is going to the beach to just hang out, boogie board, snorkel, and explore. I love to do almost anything that involves the outdoors!
I am truly blessed to work here and am looking forward to what God is going to do through Plant With Purpose in the years to come.
