joined the Ruth Harbor team in 2017 as Program Director, later transitioning to the newly created Developmental Specialist position in March 2018. This role’s focus is on recruitment of both client and staff, expanding face-to-face connections in the role of marketing and community partnerships, and overseeing special projects within the organization. Leanna had known about Ruth Harbor for 15 years and was drawn here because it would enable her to use her professional talents and connect with the residents at a heart-level. She also knew Ruth Harbor was a ministry with great meaning that she could serve in. Leanna and her husband, David, have 3 children: Dawson, Daniel and Lillie. As a family, they attend church at Soteria Des Moines. In her free time, Leanna enjoys spending time with her family, investing in her church, traveling, being outdoors, playing the piano, painting and redesigning.
