She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Science and a Master's Degree in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology. After graduation, Martin-Novoa moved to New Jersey with her husband Jonathan Katz and, after receiving her Professional Architect license in this state, she and Jonathan founded KATZ/NOVOA ARCHITECTS & PLANNERS. At Katz/Novoa, Martin-Novoa serves as the General Managing Partner in charge of the firm's day-to-day operations, including marketing of the firm's services, client relations, project programming and design. Martin-Novoa’s Hispanic background and proficiency with several languages provide her with exceptional communications skills, and are invaluable assets in her ability to understand clients' needs and expectations.
