Sometimes the more rewarding paths to a goal are the longer ones. Martha completed her final business and accounting prerequisites for her CPA candidacy at Southern Connecticut State University. Achieving her CPA is a goal of Martha’s since her first accounting job 9 years ago. The twist here is that Martha is an attorney, having received her JD from the New York Law School and her BS in Political Science from Montclair State University. Martha is a member of the New York Bar and practiced bankruptcy and healthcare contract law for 11 years.

Martha and her husband Bob, an RN at the Yale Shoreline Medical Center, relocated to Guilford to raise their young family. After settling her kids into school, she started on the accountant’s path with bookkeeping, accounting and office management jobs in local companies and then started the educational pursuit of her CPA. Martha and Bob are devoted to their two beautiful boys and enjoy outdoor life in their very few moments of free time. Murphy & Company is delighted to have Martha’s tenacious spirit as part of our team.
