In the few weeks that Jodi Keegan has been at HAC, she has quickly discovered that the agency’s work is all about serving the clients. “When I first started here, it was really emotional listening to some of the client experiences,” she said, relaying an instance in which the expense of paying for new brakes on a car nearly led one single mother to homelessness. “HAC was able to step in and help. Hearing that really touches at my heartstrings and that’s just a small part of what we do.”
Since the beginning of April, Keegan has played a role in HAC’s efforts as its new executive coordinator. In that capacity, she is assisting CEO Alisa Galazzi and supporting the senior management team.
A native Cape Codder, Keegan lives in Falmouth with her husband Patrick, a goldsmith at Keegan’s Jewelers. The couple have four children, Joscelyn, Danielle, Garrett and Jaimie.
She comes to HAC from Gosnold, having spent the past nine years as its development coordinator. Prior to that, she enjoyed a 15-year career in the banking industry. These experiences provided Keegan with a knowledge of the best practices in healthcare and customer service that is now influencing her work at HAC.
She expressed excitement for her latest career challenge. “I am filled with pride knowing the number of people that we’ve been able to help,” she said. “I love being here. I love the work that we do. I enjoy interacting with our clients. And I am passionate about Alisa’s vision for HAC’s future and honored to play a part in that vision.”
As a member of the Wampanoag Tribe, HAC’s mission closely aligns with Keegan’s passion for community. “I feel a strong connection to Mother Earth and I find great fulfillment in helping others,” she said.
