My name is Lisa Martin and I am delighted to be the new Director of Complex Care Group.  I have taken over from Jan Moss who has worked tirelessly for so many years helping establish Complex Care Group as the ‘go to’ organisation for information, advice and support for those with very high and complex needs.

I am the proud mother of two adult children – a daughter Holly (25) and son Kurt (24).  My husband Todd and I have been married 30yrs – Todd is a police officer and we live in Auckland.  Our son Kurt has autism, intellectual disability and epilepsy.  He lives at home with my husband and I.  He attended a special school for most of his schooling and now he attends a day programme 3 days per week.  Kurt is non-verbal and severely disabled – and is a very much loved member of our family with his own unique communication style and personality.

Our daughter Holly moved out of home a year ago.  She is completing post graduate study at the University of Auckland and is specialising in the neuro-sciences. Holly is also the Personal Assistant for a medical doctor who specialises in chronic pain management.

I was previously CEO of Disability Connect for 7yrs and I am delighted to join Complex Care Group as Director.  I applaud the amazing work of Jan Moss and the board in establishing Complex Care Group and progressing this cause over many years.  Jan is a very effective advocate for the high and complex needs community and I will continue and expand on the work she has established.
