Who We Are

Primarily a volunteer organization, Patriot Resilient Leader Institute (PRLI) employs two full time and one part time staff members. Our dedicated Board of Directors of veterans and local professionals oversee all operations and programming.


Staff

Steve Veinotte

Executive Director

Steve retired from the military in September 2022 after more than 20 years of service, the majority of which was with the NH Army National Guard serving in a full-time capacity as a chaplain. As part of his military duties, he provided training to hundreds of families in the form of weekend retreats focusing on communication skills and functioning as a team. He intervened on a regular basis with service members and their families in crisis, to include situations involving suicidal ideation, substance abuse, homelessness, and a host of behavioral health issues. Prior to becoming Executive Director in October 2022, he served as a volunteer facilitator, introducing family retreats to Camp Resilience. He resides in Campton, NH, with his wife, LeeAnn. LeeAnn is a retired preschool teacher who often assists with children’s activities during family retreats. They have two adult daughters, two sons-in-law, three granddaughters and two granddogs.

Liana Nguyen

Program Director

Liana came to the United States with her family from Vietnam in 1996.
In 2004, she joined the Army Reserves as a Petroleum Supply Specialist.
After being in the Army Reserves for 2 years, she switched over to the NH Army National Guard (NHARNG) in 2006 as a Human Resource Specialist. Liana acquired 2 more military occupational specialties under her belt as a Patient Administration, and a Chaplain Assistant, and retired after 20 years of service. Prior to her new position at Camp Resilience, Liana spent 17 years working full time for the NHARNG in various positions. Her most recent position was a Health Systems Specialist where she executed funding, worked on credentialing and privileges for providers, along with operational duties. Also, she conducted numerous military family retreats over her career in her role as Chaplain Assistant.

Liana deployed to Kuwait in 2010, and that was where she met her husband, Matthew. They reside in Manchester with their 2 kids (Gavin and Adelyn), and their dog (Luna).

Kimberly Baker

Kimberly graduated from Western Michigan University with Bachelor of Science in Practical Writing and a minor in History. She received a Grant Writing certification from Marygrove College in Detroit, Michigan. Kim has been active in the First Responder community in New Hampshire as a National Registry Advanced EMT and a NHEMT-A.

Kim and her husband Craig have raised three sons in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire, and still proudly call it “home.”

Deanna Reed

Administrative Coordinator

Soon after meeting her husband Travis, Deanna was whisked away to travel the country as a military spouse. From New Hampshire to Colorado, then to Florida and back, she enjoys traveling and spends her time off reading and training. She spent 6 years, a deployment, and many training exercises taking care of her two beautiful children, Ronan and Rhea, as well as maintaining the family’s residence and finances. While she managed the home, Deanna also worked as an administrative assistant for businesses such as the Bemis School of Art in Colorado Springs and 27 Virtual in Fort Myers, Florida. She is hard-working, fiercely loyal, and driven to provide support for those who have supported this country in the most difficult jobs we have. Deanna is excited to be back in NH, surrounded by friends and family again.
