County Nurse Practitioner for Public and Behavioral Health Wins Juniper Award

Kathlee Martin

Kathlee Martin is the recipient of the Community Impact Award through the Jeff Hamilton Legacy Fund.  

As a nurse for the county’s public and behavioral health departments, Martin has been serving high-risk populations in the Tahoe-Truckee region for 35 years and is passionate about removing barriers to care for the local community. She and her amazing team of public and behavioral health ambassadors are particularly committed to supporting local youth and vulnerable community members. Community Impact is one of the six categories community members can be honored in for the Juniper Awards the Jeff Hamilton Legacy Fund provides.   

Martin shared, “for all these years I thought I’ve been flying under the radar, so I was very surprised to hear about the award and very moved; I feel inspired and so grateful.” 

Olympic Bronze Medalist winner Jeff Hamilton died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 56 in 2023. In the last months of his life, he worked with his family and the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation to create a philanthropic legacy fund that would allow him to continue to give after his passing. The mission of the Jeff Hamilton Legacy Fund is to recognize individual community members’ commitment, imagination, and fearlessness by supporting their limitless potential. The monetary awards aim to alleviate financial limitations and enable recipients to engage boldly on their paths.  

District Supervisor Hardy Bullock stated, “Kathlee has been an advocate for health in our community for a long, long time. Not only is her professional acumen, top-notch her compassion as a human being is clearly evident when you spend time around her, we so appreciate having her as part of our team.“
