Compass Regional Hospice Chief Executive Officer Heather Guerieri announced the appointment of Lucie Hughes as its Director of Mission Advancement. “I am beyond excited to have Lucie join our Compass team. She will be an integral part of our leadership team. She is highly skilled and just what we need to advance our mission and presence in the communities we serve”, said Guerieri. Hughes will oversee the newly created Mission Advancement Department including fundraising, communications, advocacy and outreach, and volunteer services.

A native of Hebron, Maryland, Hughes has more than 30 years of experience in leading fundraising, communications, public relations, legislative outreach, marketing, budget planning, alumni development, special events management and strategic planning.

Hughes comes to Compass Regional Hospice from Chesapeake College where she served as the Vice President of Institutional Advancement for 5 years. Prior to Chesapeake College, she was Vice President for Advancement at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Hughes also served as Associate Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations at Maryland Institute College of the Arts. She held a similar position at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and was later a Vice President at Brakeley Briscoe, Inc. Consulting.

A graduate of Washington College, Hughes earned her master’s degree in management from Notre Dame of Maryland University. She is a graduate of LeadershipMD ‘17, and past president and current member of Tidewater Rotary where she developed and leads Talbot Goes Purple. She currently serves as a member of the Vestry for Christ Church in Easton, and as a board member for Waterfowl Chesapeake. 

Hughes joins Compass Regional Hospice at a pivotal time, as they round out their $4 million dollar capital campaign to raise funds for their expansion project, and prepare to celebrate their 35th year in business.
