Martha Ritola found her way to Hellam Varon in 2005. Specializing in estates and trusts, she insists, "I love everything about it." A bold claim for anyone with a job. Or without one. Martha brings 20 years of tax and accounting experience to the table. “Accounting found me. I grew up loving numbers and puzzles, but it’s now the people involved who keep me interested and challenged. Ultimately we're helping people resolve their problems and minimize the stress they feel."

Away from work she enjoys spending time with her husband, Kevin, and their two children. She loves to play golf, run, and watch any college football game that is on live (or even rerun) and is a devoted Tennessee Volunteer fan.  She also has two very spoiled dogs, a Labrador Retriever named Bodhi and a Beagle named Potter….or rather, they have her.

Martha is now a "long distance" Hellam Varon staff member, having recently relocated to St. Simons Island in Georgia.  Technology makes it work for all involved, and she has now added beach walks with the family to her list of leisure activities.
