Welcome Letter

Hi, thank you for stopping by!

Early in my career, I understood that the most challenging part of serving as a 911 dispatcher was not the job, although the job is most certainly challenging. I understood that the most challenging part of the job was to sustainably maintain a sense of wellness and balance in-and-out of work.

My name is Luz Martinez and, I am the creator and founder of Dispatch Wellness. I am a California POST Private Presenter, Consultant, Strategic Partner, Writer, and Wellness Advocate working with individuals and organizations to find solutions that take into account individual and collective wellness.

I bring to everything I do– my formal training as a Nutrition Coach and as a Yoga, Mindfulness, and Meditation Teacher; and my 20 years of experience working in public service- including 12 years serving as a 911 dispatcher

The lesson I consider most important in my life is to get back up every time we fall.

But we do not have to do it alone! I created Dispatch Wellness to create a safe space for dispatchers to connect and tend to our collective wellness together. My work on this platform is deeply inspired by my experiences as a 911 dispatcher and personally knowing the challenge of working in a profession so demanding of inner resources- while still having to show up for responsibilities outside of work.

The biggest inspiration for this work is YOU and your brave efforts in such a demanding profession. I hope you find something here that helps, if even a little bit, to get back up and continue on your journey. I welcome you, and I thank you for being here!

with love, and wishes of wellness,

Luz Martinez

Founder, Dispatch Wellness
