Member Spotlight: Meet San Diego Member, Suzanne Martinez!
iGnite IS our members! They make us what we are, which is why we LOVE spotlighting them! Meet our newest San Diego Member, Suzanne Martinez! While Suzanne just recently began iGniting this July, we feel like we've known her forever, because Suzanne never misses! No matter what day it is, if this amazing wife and boy-mom is in town, she's rolls up to class on her cute bike and with her positive energy, enthusiasm and smile...and she makes us all smile!
