McKinney, Martha » About...


Martha is a fourth-generation Californian but moved to Texas when she began her college career. She attended Southern Methodist University where she met her husband Blake; there she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Relations/Communications. She has three children: Katie and Ryan (both graduates of Westlake Academy) and Austin (an MYP student at Westlake Academy). After a career in financial marketing, Martha spent many years as a stay-at-home Mom volunteering at her children’s schools and just “being a mom.”

Martha joined Westlake Academy in 2014 and spent the last four years in the front office of the Secondary Building. Beginning this August, she will undertake a new role: Alumni Relations and Communications Specialist. She is very excited to build and grow our Alumni Program, and is eager to connect with and become a resource for our Alumni. In addition, she will continue to be responsible for much of the communications designed for parents and the Westlake community including the weekly Communiqué and the content on our website. She also will continue her role as Student Council Faculty Sponsor.

Martha's favorite thing about Westlake is the students. Her previous role allowed her to connect with them on a daily basis as they passed by the office. This year she looks forward to engaging with them in the classroom and on campus as she shares the news of all the great things that are happening at WA.
