Marti married young, entering an evangelical cult at the same time, and spent 25 years as a stay-at-home mother, subsuming her own opinions for the sake of a husband who did not allow her to have her own freedoms. Eventually, Marti left the cult and began working to gain some independence. Recently, Marti went back to school and learned medical coding, an education that will allow her to get a job in the medical field. However, because of quarantine, she continued to remain at home until deciding to leave her husband.
At this time, Marti needs funds to obtain a car, an apartment, and the ability to pay for travel to the big city for work. She spends a lot on gas so that she can visit her children from her current home base at her parents' house. She is job hunting feverishly and has hopes that an independent life will be possible for her soon.
