Martha Boneta is a farmer at Liberty Farm in Paris, Virginia. A native Virginian, Martha grew up in Mt. Vernon on what she was told was a part of George Washington’s vast farmland. Growing up, her family always had kitchen gardens and it was Martha’s childhood dream to be a Virginia farmer and that dream became reality six years ago.
Martha graduated from St. Mary’s Catholic School in Old Town Alexandria, Notre Dame Academy in Middleburg, George Mason University for undergraduate school, George Mason School of law where she received her Juris Doctor and the prestigious Strauss Institute at Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, where she studied Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Immediately following law school, Martha was a registered lobbyist in Washington, DC that propelled her career as strategic account executive at Reed Elsevier for the Mid-Atlantic Region and Thomson Reuters in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area.
