Her experiences as a star volleyball athlete, wife, and mom of 2, brings out her uniqueness in the form of nurture, drive, and connection. Dr. J connects, makes you feel comfortable, and will give you the tools for success
She has worked in a variety of settings including outpatient orthopedic practices and hospital settings, seeing a variety of clients from competitive athletes to kids, to pregnant/ postpartum women and more. This experience fueled her desire to focus exclusively on the pelvic floor as she realized that there was a huge gap in care and individuals often suffered when they didn't have to because there was unaware that there were solutions.
She formed JMM Health Solutions with a focus on pelvic floor dysfunction in adults and children and provides services not only in her Duluth location but also in-home and virtual/ online sessions. Dr. Martin is also a speaker, mentor and consultant but when not working, enjoys being with her family, travel and coaching volleyball.
