Ms.
Marter studied accounting at Chattanooga State, UTC and received her BS in management and leadership from Warren National University.  She is a 1996 graduate of Campbell University Southeastern Trust School, 1998 graduate of Cannon Financial Institute School of Foundation Management, 2000 graduate of Leadership Chattanooga and 2008 graduate of Global Diversity Leadership.
