Dee Belanger and Tricia Zahn have joined the board of Community Volunteer Transportation Company (CVTC), which coordinates transportation options for everyone in 34 towns of the Monadnock Region, by providing rides for those who do not have access to transportation, due to age, ability, income, or other life circumstances. Essential destinations for these no-fee rides include non-emergency medical and social service appointments, grocery store, and pharmacy.

“I am delighted to have Dee and Tricia on board. They both bring a wealth of knowledge and level of expertise that broadens the solid foundation of our current board members. Their experience working within the Monadnock Region and their personal values align exceptionally with the mission of CVTC, bringing added depth of dedication and commitment to the work we do,” said Eileen Fernandes, Chair of the Board of CVTC.

Belanger is the COO of the 1911 Office, LLC, where she is responsible for organizational effectiveness. She is on the Leadership Monadnock Advisory Committee.

“I am delighted for the opportunity to serve on the Community Volunteer Transportation Company Board to support a much-needed service in rural New Hampshire where public transportation is difficult to obtain,” Belanger said.

Belanger serves on the Board for the Friends of the Cheshire County Drug Court, is a member of the Keene Elm City Rotary Club, and volunteers for the Monadnock United Way, most recently as its General Campaign Chair.

Zahn received her BS in Public Health from the University of Tampa and in 2014 received her Master’s in Public Health from UNH. She held several public health positions around the country before moving back to New Hampshire in 2012. At that time, she was hired as the Public Health Emergency Preparedness Coordinator for the Greater Monadnock Public Health Network and advanced to Partner Manager at the Center for Population Health (CPH) at Cheshire Medical Center. Zahn is currently Director of Community Strategic Partnerships for CPH, where she continues to support opportunities that advance the health and well-being of the region.

“I am proud to be serving on the board of CVTC because I know lack of transportation is isolating and challenging. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the solution and support our community to continue to move in the right direction by providing transportation access to those who could not otherwise attend to their health issues,” Zahn said.
