About the Founder
AngelTracks was founded by 15-year-old Martha Baker in 2014. The impetus for this non-profit was the result of her cousin’s struggle with substance abuse and consequential overdose. Her heroin addiction was kept a secret from most family members, in the hopes that she would overcome it. This incident, along with the increasing number of drug-related deaths, compelled her to begin a non-profit that focuses on drug prevention and education with middle and high school-aged teenagers; but with a twist. She tackles substance abuse at a peer level and from a family perspective. Her desire is to create awareness for this ever prevalent problem in the hopes of dissuading peers and preventing more needless drug-related deaths.
Martha currently attends Colorado Academy (CA). She is a member of the Youth Advisory Board at the Young American Center for Financial Education, a member of the CA Mock Trial team and a member of the CA Varsity lacrosse team. She has been involved in many philanthropic activities, including volunteering at Children’s Hospital, Trinity Soup Kitchen, and CA’s HOPE club. Her previous work experience includes Strang Ranch, where she was an assistant ranch hand, Betty Hoops where she sold hula hoops at Carbondale Mountain Fair, and coaching for Denver Lacrosse Club’s Mini Mites program. She was a member of CA Community Council Freshmen year and has been an Honors student since sixth grade.
