Improvement Advisor Co-Design
Lisa has spent over 20 years working as a project coordinator and event manager for companies such at Air New Zealand and General Motors, before moving her career path to health.
In her previous role as an ACC Case Manager at Counties Manukau Health (CMH), she worked closely with her clients, listening to both their vocational and social needs to create a rehabilitation plan to help them return to work. Having the clients input into their rehabilitation, respecting their cultural needs and being aware of any barriers they faced was a key factor to their success.
Lisa joined Ko Awatea in 2016 as the External Programmes Coordinator, coordinating Improvement Science workshops such as the Improvement Advisor Programme and Improvement Facilitator Programme for Mental Health and Addictions teams. Lisa’s event management background was utilized recently when coordinating CMH’s attendance at Polyfest 2021 and when working with the Maaori Health Team on the promotion of MMR immunisations in the South Auckland community.
Lisa’s interest in health has grown over the past 5 years, she is currently studying Public Health and Health Promotion (level 5).
