Martha LaGuardia-Kotite – Coast Guard Veteran, Leader, TEDx Speaker & Author
Martha spent 29 years serving in the Coast Guard. Her time in the service took her around the world and she rose to the senior rank of captain. This time shaped her into the leader and story teller she is today. She served in many capacities from natural disasters to public relations. She also served as one of the first female officers aboard Coast Guard cutters with all male crews.
“Be Bold, Be First & Be You.”
Awarding Winning Author & Speaker
Martha always loved stories and sharing them, but it wasn’t until she heard about a rescue swimmer making a cave rescue and nearly losing their life that she was inspired to become an author. Now an award-winning author of five books and one in the works. It has been writing these stories about Coast Guard heroes and women serving in the military that empowered her to dream bigger. She shares this vision with audiences across the nation as a keynote speaker too.
