Arthuretta Holmes-Martin, a longtime advocate in the Whistleblower Community who holds a Master of Science in federal contract management, blew the whistle on federal contract corruption at the Internal Revenue Service. After a twenty-five year career in the federal government, she launched a small business. The business, Words and Melodies, provides audiences the experience of learning and healing through the powerful tool of storytelling.
