Martha Tecca


Martha Tecca is committed to a world in which all individuals and families can lead their best lives in compassionate, engaged, and improving communities. She has led change through collaboration, measurement, resourcefulness, and a passionate focus on individual and community involvement. A management strategist and an entrepreneur, Martha has helped launch and grow non-profit organizations, networks, businesses, and faith-based programs, improving well-being, healthcare, end of life experience, and lifelong communities.

Martha is founding president of CommunityCare of Lyme (CCL), building connections, partnerships, and a generous neighborly spirit that make everyone’s well-being a priority. CCL has been central to Lyme’s coordinated response during the Covid-19 pandemic, creating new levels of trust among neighbors and sustainable programs and systems that will be among the “silver linings” of this challenging time.

Martha participates in the leadership of several collaborative networks aimed to share and grow programs that contribute to increasingly vital communities: the Well-being in the Nation (WIN) Network Measurement & Learning collaborative, the Village to Village Network, the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging, the New Hampshire Alliance for Healthy Aging, the Public Health Council of the Upper Valley, and the Lyme Congregational Church Health Ministry. The100 Million Healthier Lives movement has inspired and had an impact on all of her work.

Martha’s community-focused efforts grew out of experience across the healthcare system. Starting in 1990, she built and managed performance improvement networks with health care systems and providers, facilitating shared learning across hundreds of organizations and communities. For over 15 years, she worked in home health, hospice and palliative care, designing and implementing collaborative measurement tools and strategies. In partnership with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, she helped implement and promote the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care and its benchmarking program, utilized voluntarily by over one third of hospices. She participated on technical expert panels advising the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the development of the Hospice Quality Reporting Program. Early in her career, she worked with Bain & Company, a strategic management consulting firm, and Genzyme Corporation, in its start-up phase. She holds an MBA from Dartmouth and a BA in Biology from Harvard.

Martha loves cooking, singing, hiking, skiing, making new connections between people, and hosting big gatherings. There is always room at the Teccas’ table.
