Martha Dietrick is in fourth year as the PERA Department's Associate Director for Budget and Personnel in 2017-18, after previously serving as the Associate Director for Facilities, Operations, and Recreation for twenty-two years prior.
Martha is a member of the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) and the Association of Higher Education Facilities Officers (APPA). She has also served two terms on the Massachusetts Governor's Committee on Physical Fitness and Sports.
One of Martha's special projects in recreation is to create opportunities for student leadership. She has developed detailed job descriptions for all student workers and created positions for student coordinators in the four major recreational activities: swimming, weight room, aerobics, and front desk. These positions enable coordinators to develop leadership, supervisory, and organizational skills. The students oversee the day-to-day scheduling of these areas and become very responsible and responsive to the needs of students and members.
Martha enjoys spending time with her family, husband Steve, daughter Blake, and son Tucker. She also enjoys yoga, collecting cookbooks, and most outdoor activities.
