Born and raised in Spartanburg, SC, Martha graduated from Columbia College with a BA in psychology. Frank and Martha were high school sweethearts and married in 1974. Having grown up with her father owning a clothing store, Martha was excited to return to the family business after college as Vice-President of Shea’s, Inc.  Eight years later, Frank’s job took them to Charlotte, NC where they raised their two boys. Martha worked for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools before joining Frank to open Carolina’s Home Medical Equipment, Inc. in 2003. Martha’s skill set was the perfect fit to compliment Frank as she has a keen sense of getting the details right. Without her attention to detail, the company would have had difficulty getting off the ground. “We feel very fortunate to be able to provide the quality products and personal service that we would expect for our own parents”, said Martha.  In her free time, Martha enjoys reading, cooking, and most of all spending time with her three grandchildren.
