Howdy! I'm Martha Lentz

-Live in Lakewood, WA

-I'm the drummer for 3 outfits... Band called One Step Closer, my church worship team, and a duo with a guy where we play oldies but goodies at veterans homes and retirement centers.

-Career as a hydrogeologist/geologist. Currently working part time as a geologist for a consulting firm reviewing technical reports. Retired in 2012 from EPA as a hydrogeologist for 31 years.

-Hobbies include (other than drums) tying paracord stuff like plant hangers, survival bracelets, and dog collars and leashes ... here's my web site:

I love riding my Harley Heritage, playing video games like LOTRO and FFXIV.
Raising my doberman pup for the last few months... he's almost 9 months old now, and is the sweetest dog in the world! Love my 2 cats and 2 pigmy goats too!

I played acoustic guitar for years, and still do when they need me at church.
