Who We Are

Whitney Martinez

Administrative & Development Coordinator


Whitney has been around and involved with the Stars program since she was in the 2nd grade. Growing up around the program she made lifelong friends and was given the opportunity to serve the Pasadena community through the Jr. League of Pasadena. She was also and still is supported by an awesome mentor, Keyanna Chase, who was also a part of the Stars Mentoring program growing up.

Whitney graduated from California State University, Northridge in May of 2017 with her BA in Early Child Development. She recently received her MA in Marriage and Family Therapy with a specialization in Trauma studies, here in Pasadena at Pacific Oaks College. Whitney has also had the opportunity to jump back onto a school campus where she does individual therapy with Middle School aged children.

Aside from enjoying her work with children inside and outside of Stars, Whitney also enjoys making her house a home with her partner Loowey and their fur babies Grza and Nina. Whitney is also expecting her first baby in March of 2022! She also enjoys spending her free time with friends and family.
