Vanpool’s refreshed brand look throughout our marketing communication channels over the past few years comes at the talented and creative hands of Nina Nino. As vanpool communications specialist, she’s in charge of bridging the gap between vanpool and the public we serve, by managing our social media channels and designing marketing materials that promote the program. Among the many ways she’s broadened our reach is her role in the translation of our marketing collateral to Spanish. Her belief in information related to public transportation being accessible to all, is one of the reasons she is being honored as the future of vanpool. This #WomensHistoryMonth, we celebrate you and all your contributions to transit! Thank you!

Lucille "Lu" Chambers' service-oriented career brought her to the industry in 2007. She has held roles that have allowed her to gain expertise in all sides of vanpool. She is currently ensuring that we remain financially viable and accountable to the government entities that provide our funding through her current role, as Manager of Vanpool Billing and Reporting. This #WomensHistoryMonth, it is our pleasure to honor her present contributions toward the continued growth and strength of our program.

This #WomensHistoryMonth, we are proud to recognize Beverly Elam - one of our #TransitTrailblazers who paved the way for future generations of women in transit. β€œI so believe in the vanpool message of sharing a ride to work and cleaning our air!” The passionate words of former account executive and vanpool program manager, Beverly, who championed the cause of vanpool throughout the Houston Galveston region for eighteen years. Beverly's efforts played a significant part in further strengthening relationships with some of vanpool's longest-standing customers like Baker Hughes and Anadarko. She fondly recalls corralling new vanpoolers in the same zip code together to form a new vanpool route as "zip code parties", and reveled in the opportunity to assist the employees of corporations who would be relocating and suddenly realized they'd now have a longer commute to and from work. Her own bit of sage wisdom for successfully navigating through one's career is, "When changes happen as they always do, just hang on to the surfboard." We thank you, Beverly! Your contributions to our vanpool program and transit are invaluable.

This #WomensHistoryMonth, we are honored to recognize the future of vanpool. Kennedi Davis is very familiar with the phrase "First impressions are lasting impressions". She's consistently brought that understanding to her role as a Vanpool CSR & Waitlist Specialist by being on the front lines of welcoming prospective customers who are considering our vanpool service, helping them establish a new vanpool route or fill an empty seat on an existing route. Providing excellent customer service every day is just one of the reasons why she's considered the future of vanpool, and we're so excited to see where Kennedi's career flourishes from here.
