“THRILLED!” When Rod Romero told me he was opening an agency to work directly with non-profit organizations, I was delighted. When he asked me to be a part of Delia Martin Agency, I was THRILLED.
I’ve worked with some really great people over the years. Russ Reid at RRC. Randy Brewer at Brewer Direct. Bob Hemmings at the original Smith/Hemmings. In each case, my greatest thrill has been creating fundraising programs with people who genuinely care about and are directly involved with their clients.
Now, I have the opportunity to do so again.

Stepping into the business of faith-based fundraising was definitely a life changing decision. A decision I’m not entirely certain was all mine.
Just 5 years back, a position at Brewer Direct seemed to fall into my hands, and I remember feeling pride, knowing I would have a small part in helping those in need, but a hint of fear because I didn’t believe in God. A God I would hear and read about day in and day out, because naturally it came with the territory.
Starting as an account coordinator at Brewer allowed me the opportunity to have hands on experience with clients and integrate my 16 years of experience working with data and reporting, but most importantly, it allowed me the opportunity to welcome God into my heart and be made new.
Leaving Brewer was no easy step by any measure, but in time it led me to work here at Delia Martin, which God knew would be a perfect fit allowing me the flexibility to really focus on Him.
I’m truly blessed to be a part of this growing company and can’t wait to see where God takes us.
