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.

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.
