Janet Hamm is a genius Realtor and every-day, all-around great person. She's going to kill me if she reads this bio that has been written for her because she's reluctant to say good things about herself.
We'll have a modest and abbreviated bio soon, I'm sure, and it'll go right here.
Martha Hughes began her career as a Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service in 1990. She was initially assigned to the Birmingham Field Office before she was transferred to Intelligence Division in Washington, D.C. After ten years with the Secret Service, Martha transferred to the Food and Drug Administration's Office of Criminal Investigations as a Special Agent. After serving four years with the Special Prosecution Staff, Martha was able to transfer home to Birmingham, Alabama and swerved the next fourteen years as one of two agents assigned to work criminal investigations in Alabama. Martha has been married to her husband, Mark, for 28 years and has two sons, Michael and Marshall. She has two German Shepherds, Heidi and Kane who are just as much a part of the family as her human sons.
Cade Kuykendall is the co-founder of Team Mountain, INC. It was his "giving" heart that prompted the creation of Team Mountain in 2017, when he and his dad were in a tent, approximately 15,000ft above sea level, at base camp before the last summit push for Mt Kilimanjaro's peak. Cade had been a last-minute fill-in because the trek, organized by his dad to bring awareness to the Kidney Foundation, needed ten climbers for a discount. Cade was considering that in his dad's selfish thinking, he (Bob) didn't really take the time to consider the others in the group - they were just needed for the discounts. But after ten days of isolation on the mountain, the group became friends. We shared stories, dreams, tears and laughter. Cade's sad realization was that we all do this: We interact with others just to accomplish our own mission or goal, seldom considering others' needs. His words, "We're all 'climbing' something" was the beginning of Team Mountain. Cade was the youngest person in the guide company's history to reach the summit.

Bob Kuykendall began his professional career at the age of 18 in the mail room of the FBI in Birmingham. After graduating from UAB, he became a criminal investigator and went on to spend 28 years as an agent, working primarily fraud investigations. After transferring to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Bob served as National Consumer Fraud Program Manager in Washington DC. While in DC, Bob created and led operation kNOw Fraud which was launched by President Clinton who called it the "most ambitious fraud prevention campaign ever undertaken." Bob left the USPIS after 9/11 in an effort to return "home" to Birmingham. He accepted a counter-terrorism position with the FDA's Office of Criminal Investigations and served his remaining years of service chasing illegal fraud scheme operators and drug distributors. After retiring in 2018, Bob chose real estate as a way to continue serving others. His real estate efforts now primarily fund Team Mountain. Bob married his high school sweetheart, Kelly, and they have two kids, Maddie, currently in Vet School; and Cade, headed to Auburn in 2021.
We gotta get the Board together for a team photo. For now, enjoy this fine representation of the amount of fun we're gonna have.
