Debbie Martin

Name – Debbie Martin

Reside in Paraparaumu

Married with 2 adult children

Passionate about- Helping others but also in return not being taken for granted.

We moved as a family to Kapiti Coast 15 years ago from Auckland, My background is in Caregiving/Nursing in the aged care sector,
and administration I went on to do tertiary education refresher course in Business Management.
I ran my own Small Business here in Kapiti for 5 years (DMS Candles).
My husband works for a local kitchen Company here on the Kapiti Coast,

What I like about Kapiti Coast is the actually green space, the bush areas close by and the lovely beaches.

Why I want to be involved with Keda is to me Economic growth and Development is vastly important to the area of Kapiti, and in the 15 years I have seen so much growth and development in the aged care industry, retail industry, Housing, sadly not so much in the education sector.
I want to be able to gain more knowledge and pass on knowledge having moved from one of the most busiest and now complained about cities where growth and economics are pushing people out as its no longer affordable.

Business management, Fund raising, Social media, Other
