Hughes joined Community Connections two and a half years ago as a relief driver at our Mashpee program. Since then she has moved from driving a route, serving as Transportation Coordinator, serving as acting Transportation Manager, and now serving as the Cape Cod Transportation Manager.
In this role she coordinates routes, monthly billing, and all vehicle maintenance, inspections and servicing. She is also responsible for overseeing driver hiring, screening, training, CPR and First Aid certifications.
“Since joining our team, Heather has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the people we serve, and has developed a great camaraderie with both her staff and clients. Her promotion is well deserved and will allow us to continue providing safe, reliable and accessible transportation,” said Kathy Ferreira, Community Connections Service Director.
