Meet the Teacher

Rebecca Martinson

I am a nurse with 17 years of experience working for local hospital systems in both Skagit and Whatcom Counties. I love being a nurse, but I came to NCTA in 2011 because I was looking to share my excitement for medicine with the next generation. I have never looked back!

I love watching teenagers discover their own passion for caring for others and thinking on their feet. Our class is lively and engaging- it is a bit of hard work and a lot of fun!

In my free time, I enjoy volunteering for local clinics that serve under-served communities, and recently I worked with SCPH at vaccination clinics. I stay very involved in the local community and I feel blessed to be able to share my talents with others. I am an avid amateur photographer, so you can often find me around town, searching for beauty in ordinary things, or find me at dawn, capturing photos of the Pacific Northwest's extraordinary wildlife.
