Martha Shickle

Executive Director


Martha joined PlanRVA in 2015 and is focused on ensuring the organization runs effectively. Her work includes supporting individual staff to provide any resources they need as well as the organization at large to build partnerships and maintain relevance. Martha enjoys seeing the connections across each PlanRVA program and how the work lays a foundation for localities to build on in completing projects and improving the community.

When she’s not in the office, Martha loves to spend time outside and with close friends and family. A few of her favorite Richmond spots to visit include Byrd Park and Carytown and dining at her favorite restaurant The Stables.

Martha earned her master’s in Public Administration from George Mason University.
