As the Director of Community Relations for Woodbine Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center and Alexandria Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, family, community and service are all incredibly important facets of Jane Hughes’s day-to-day life—both on and off the clock. “Families need our help at the most vulnerable times in their lives,” says Hughes, who also serves on the Board of Lady Managers of Inova Alexandria Hospital as well as the Board of Senior Services of Alexandria. “I assure families and professional care providers that their important person will be cared for with competence and compassion in our communities. I am proud to represent hundreds of caring professionals who are working around the clock to care for short and long-term residents in our facilities.”

"I believe that stress is a factor in women's health challenges. By supporting each other, we support the health of our community.”

At home, she’s the sole parent to her children. “They inspire me,” she says. “We lost their father 10 years ago, and we have all made it through with the support of this community that has become our Alexandria family.”

That “Alexandria family” is filled with women who have also inspired Hughes in her career and in her personal life. “I have had the incredible support of many strong Alexandria women,” she says. “They span generations [and] represent various professions and diversities. I am so fortunate to live in a community where we generously support one another.”
