During Leah’s career, she has worked as a wilderness field instructor, wilderness therapist, program director, and clinical leader and innovator for several nationally recognized programs. Most recently, she has been leading the national efforts of the Potomac Programs In-Home team (formerly known as Vive Family Support Program). Drew Hornbeck and Steve Sawyer, co-founders of NVW, are thrilled to have Leah join their team. Drew Hornbeck, CEO of NVW, said, “With the development of this position, we are doubling down on supporting our families and team.” Leah’s role will include oversight of the Wisconsin and Oregon programs and the development of new locations.
“My heart has always been in the wilderness. Returning to Outdoor Behavioral Healthcare with such a talented group who is mission-driven is a dream come true,” said Leah. “I look forward to supporting Andrew Scott and Kaci Sapinski in their roles as Executive Directors.”
Leah lives in Asheville, NC, with her husband and two children. When she is not working, you can find her reading a book, in a hot yoga class, or spending time outside with her family.
