Heroes In Transition, a Mashpee-based nonprofit providing assistance and support to veterans, service members and military families, has named Savannah Fabbio of East Falmouth to its board of directors.
“Savannah has long been a supporter of our work, annually participating in our Ruck4HIT, and working to ensure that those we serve receive the help they need and deserve,” said Heroes In Transition Executive Director Nicole Spencer. “As the daughter of two retired service members, she understands the sacrifices made by our military and their families, and the importance of giving back to them.”
“I’ve known multiple people in my life who have gone overseas and have come back very different,” said Fabbio, whose parents Doreen and Kent Landry both served in the Marines. “Having an organization like Heroes, where they can work through what is going on in their heads or to help them adjust back to family life, is so important.”
A graduate of Bourne High School, Fabbio received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Bridgewater State College. She has spent the past four years as a loan officer with Shamrock Home Loans. Prior to that, she served as the manager for The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod Marstons Mills branch.
Fabbio also volunteers as an instructor for Housing Assistance Corporation’s First-Time Homebuyers workshop; is a financial volunteer for WE CAN’s (Women’s Empowerment Through Cape Area Networking) financial empowerment one-on-one sessions; is a member of the Falmouth Elks; and is the Assistant Treasurer for the Falmouth Housing Trust’s Board of Directors. She also is the volunteer coordinator for the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce and sits on the Community and Member Engagement Group for the Cape Cod & Islands Association of REALTORS®.
Heroes in Transition was founded in 2009 following the death of U.S. Marine Captain Eric A. Jones. To learn more visit www.heroesintransition.org.
