Martice is the co-founder of Full Circle Healing. Martice has a deep passion for growing food and caring for the earth. Having grown up in poverty, Martice brings a wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience of social injustice. For over six years, Martice worked closely with those experiencing homelessness, before pursuing his passion to work with the land. Martice is passionate about working with those who are disenfranchised, and believes that one way to heal our broken world is to simply remember that all people, regardless of their circumstance, are people and should be treated with dignity and respect. Martice currently works full time in a prison reentry program designed to address unresolved, underlying trauma that predicates anti-social and criminal behavior and heightens the risk for ongoing criminal system involvement. He feels honored to be able to mentor the brothers that he serves, and he hopes to pursue this type of work through Full Circle Healing in the near future.
Martice is a certified Reiki 2 practitioner and loves to be able to help people holistically heal through his Reiki sessions. He also enjoys writing fiction, learning to play the djembe, watching and practicing martial arts, trying to troubleshoot computer issues, and relaxing with his wife and sons.
