Kimberly Milauna Martinez was born in Chicago, Illinois to a Dominican father and Mexican mother. After graduating from high school, Martinez went on to Northwestern University. She graduated from Northwestern with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps via the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps. While at Northwestern, Martinez decided to become a military police officer.

After The Basic School, she attended the Military Police Basic Officers Course at Fort Leonardwood, Missouri. Martinez was then assigned as a military police platoon commander to Marine Wing Support Squadron 373 at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California. She was later assigned as a watch commander to Military Police Company, Security Battalion, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

Martinez left the Marine Corps after four years of service and applied to join the Drug Enforcement Administration. Before she could join the DEA, she had to go through the DEA application and hiring process, which included a physical fitness test, a background investigation, and a medical examination. After her successful completion of the hiring process, Martinez went on to attend the Basic Agent Training program at the DEA Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Upon completion of training, she was assigned to the Miami Field Division.

Three years into her DEA career, Martinez went through the Foreign-deployed Advisory Support Team selection and training process and was then assigned to a FAST team based at Marine Corps Base Quantico. After a deployment in Afghanistan, she was redeployed to Colombia for clandestine counter-narcotics assault operations against drug cartels.

A little while later, Martinez was assigned as an inter-agency liaison and field operations officer to a top-secret anti-terrorist paramilitary black ops unit within the Defense Intelligence Agency called Section 20. Focusing on high-risk and top-priority targets, Section 20 is a high-tech DIA tactical operations group that attacks terrorist threats where they originate by functioning as a highly sophisticated mobile intelligence unit with the capability to move from country to country anywhere in the world, sometimes covertly, sometimes with the agreement of the local government.

All of Section 20's work is unofficial and "off the books." That allows its small group of operatives to operate independent of the U.S. national security apparatus and therefore disregard various laws and international treaties. The missions tasked to Section 20 are deniable covert and clandestine operations that would be completely disavowed by the U.S. government if ever made public. They include targeted killings, false-flag actions, enforced disappearances, clandestine insertion and extraction of operatives, and providing secret military assistance to foreign governments in their counter-terrorism efforts.

As a premier counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism operative, Special Agent Kim Martinez has helped save the United States from devastating threats on numerous occasions.
