Roxanne Martens holds both her bachelor's and master's degrees from Kansas State University. Upon completion of her master's degree focusing on personal financial planning, she accepted an instructor position with K-State on the Salina campus. In her first year teaching, Martens passed the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) Examination. Passing the exam and graduating from a CFP® Board Registered University, she possesses the experiences and education necessary to interactively teach and connect with students who wish to do the same.
Working with students as their advisor, financial counselor or educator, or mentor is very valuable to Martens. It is a time to connect with her students and learn what is working well in the classroom, along with encouraging them in their academic and personal endeavors.
Kansas State University is family to Martens. Both of her siblings also have degrees from K-State, and they all continue to bleed purple! Martens and her husband enjoy their free time by traveling to visit family as well as for fun, playing with their golden retriever, Ralph, working on house projects and helping with the youth group at her church.
