President & CEO
Martelle Esposito, MS, MPH
After a decade of working on health and nutrition policies and programs, including many years with WIC, Martelle currently leads Mothership’s operations, program development, and program implementation. Martelle admires the hard work of moms, dads, and other supportive caregivers as they create the future of our world.
With a decade of design experience in many industries, Joey currently designs meaningful healthcare experiences as a Principal Designer with Steelcase Health. In his free time, as Chief Creative Officer of Mothership, he reflects on being a son, a WIC baby, a partner, and a supporter of parents.
As Executive Director of a non-profit social impact design firm and mom of a 5-year-old, Augusta uses design methods to tackle complex problems. Currently, these include building a more equitable education system across the city of Boston and helping her daughter conquer her fear of swim class.
Kimberley Broomfield-Massey, PhD
As Senior Project Director at EMSTAR Research and mom, Kimberley helps organizations achieve their visions by evaluating and improving their programs and partner relationships. She does all this while holding back tears as she sends her baby out into the big, fascinating world of elementary school.

After working several years as a researcher and consultant on local and national food policy issues in the UK, Georgia now works in the US to bridge the gaps between research, policy, and practice in the field of early childhood nutrition as the Research and Evaluation Manager at the National WIC Association.
As Founder and CEO at Food Equality Initiative and mom, Emily leads a team dedicated to improving health and ending hunger in patients with food allergies and celiac disease through access to safe foods, nutrition education and advocacy.
As Group Director of a brand engagement firm, Sascha helps organizations' brands live up to the work they are doing. She uses empathy, conversation and observation to understand what makes people tick and brings those insights to life across communications, products and teams.
