Welcome Hacker #8

The latest addition to the Charity Hack team is Maria Martin who brings a wealth of project management experience within the third sector as well as a touch of glamour :-)

Have look at her bio

Maria is a self-confessed beauty and cosmetics geek, a passion that led her to work for favourite charity “Look Good Feel Better” – a service that helps people manage the visible side-effects of their cancer treatment.

As Programme Manager of Look Good Feel Better Ireland she is part of a worldwide cancer support service that exists in 25 countries, having started off 5 years ago as a volunteer. Qualifying for the Vodafone World of Difference Awards led to her becoming a full time member of staff and having gone from strength to strength; reaching 1,000 cancer patients a year she has now spearheaded the transition from an Irish Cancer Society service to it becoming a stand-alone charity.
Through her various roles Maria has liaised with over 60 cancer support centres nationwide through the Irish Cancer Society’s Affiliation programme and prior to this Maria’s experience includes Event management, Recruitment and Training.
