Just as there are no two recipes that contain the exact same ingredients or measurements, there are no two success stories exactly the same. Recipe For Success features entrepreneurs, visionary leaders and innovators of all ages who will share their ingredients that make them successful – personally and professionally.

Let's get cooking! Since her arrival to the United States, Marta Batmasian has demonstrated a true immigrant spirit, by getting involved and excelling in the fields of education, business, politics and community service. 

Having been born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey as a Christian Armenian, Marta’s dream was to immigrate to the U.S. where minority groups were given the opportunity to integrate easily and pursue their dreams. 

After graduating from Esayan Lycée, in Istanbul, as a Valedictorian of her class, she was admitted to the prestigious Robert College, founded as a branch of Columbia University in Istanbul. 

In her junior year, the family had relocated to Netherlands where Marta attended Leiden University prior to her departure to the United States to complete her education. 

She attended Emerson College in Boston where she received a B.A. degree in English with honors. She continued her graduate studies by enrolling in Brandeis University joint Masters and Ph.D. program in Near Eastern Studies. Upon completion of her studies, she became the superintendent of a small school, then adjunct professor at University of Massachusetts for eight years until her departure to Boca Raton, Florida. She subsequently received a M.B.A. from Barry University in Miami.  

Her Board Directorships and community charitable involvements are extensive. She has founded and funded many community endeavors, including Children’s Science Explorium, Tri-County Rescue Shelter, League of Education Awareness of Holocaust (LEAH), People Reaching Out to Provide Education and Leadership (PROPEL), Garden of Humanity, and several others.

Her board memberships include South Florida PBS, Florida Atlantic University, Fund for Armenian Relief (FAR), National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR), Nova Southeastern University School of Business to name a few. She has received numerous awards and recognitions, including, College Club Achievement Award for Excellence in Business and Education (1983), Junior League of Boca Raton, Volunteer of the Year (1997), One Community (Formerly known as National Conference of Christians and Jews) (2009), Outstanding Person and Leader – OPAL award by Rotary Club for community service (2011), and several others.
