She Wants To Inspire Others
Martin told The List that she was approached by a friend who works in television to be a cast member on The Real Housewives of Miami. While she was ambivalent at first, she agreed to appear on the show to share her story with viewers. "At first, I was like, 'You're crazy. This is not for me,' but then she made a lot of really interesting points. She pointed out, 'You've had a really unique upbringing, you've overcome so many challenges, and it's something that's really inspiring to young people. And there aren't a lot of very glamorous young women that children can look up to nowadays. It's a lot of influencers and people on social media and everything always looks really glamorous, but your story is challenging. And if you have the courage to share that with people, you can really inspire women to overcome anything.'"
She's At Peace With Her Past
When Martin shared her story with her cast members, she said to The List that the moment helped her accept her past and make peace with it. "We're talking about years of repressed feelings and emotions that I'd never really dealt with before. And being on the show put this pressure on me to deal with the elephant that was sitting in the room for so many years, and so I'm very thankful for the opportunity that forced me to address these kind of repressed issues that have been sitting around for years, that I probably would've never dealt with, had it not been for the show and my son."
Martin has a lot on her plate. From filming Real Housewives, to her career as an anesthesiologist, to her family, she has a lot of things to do. However, she tells E! News that she stays organized, and is able to get everything done. "As a full-time anesthesiologist, busy mom, and new cast member on the Real Housewives of Miami, time is tight, but if you stay organized, set specific, achievable goals you'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish!"
She Loves Foam Rollers
Martin revealed some of her favorite essential life and wellness products with E! News. One of her favorites is the TriggerPoint Foam Roller. Martin says that she loves to use this each morning, especially after exercising. "Call it part of the aging process or postpartum body changes, but my hips and backs hurt! I've found that stretching and foam rolling really help loosen my muscles. Just a few minutes in the morning have made a huge difference, especially after a heavy workout."
She Owns A Portable Blender
Another of Martin's essential products that she shared with E! News was a portable blender from BlendJet. She says that this comes in handy when she's on the road, and it helps her eat healthy. "With traveling usually comes all the delicious (not so healthy) food and drinks. Even on the road, I try to make clean decisions when it comes to food. If getting healthier is one of your goals, a portable blender is a great idea."
