Marti Heyman designs, builds, and implements metadata solutions to enable the discovery of data, information, and knowledge.

She is driven by a passion to connect people to the information and knowledge they need – when they need it. She is experienced in many facets of information management and knowledge organization. Marti focuses on generating revenue and cost savings through metadata architecture (including design, development, and implementation of taxonomies and other controlled vocabularies) and knowledge capture, storage, and retrieval in a manner that facilitates maximum return for the enterprise. Marti and I overlapped at Deloitte from 2009-2011. She is based in Ocala, Florida.
