Martha Brown, a 5th generation native Texan, is the Executive Director of Keep Rowlett Beautiful (KRB) and serves on the Rowlett City Council as Mayor Pro Tem. In her role as Executive Director of KRB, Martha’s main focus is on environmental education, litter control, waterway cleanups, and beautification projects. She is also on the Board with the organization, RETREET. When a Category EF4 tornado cut a path through the heart of Rowlett on December 26, 2015, it destroyed hundreds of homes and trees. RETREET came to the rescue with partners, volunteers, funding, resources, know-how, and a contagious, can-do spirit. Martha was delighted to join the Board of Directors and their mission to plant hope in the hearts of those affected by disaster by restoring urban forests while adding long-term environmental and economic value to those communities.
