Jim DeJuneas
Board of Directors
Sales Leadership, Boston Scientific

I retired from a 25-year career in sales leadership at a Fortune 500 company called Boston Scientific (BSC). I led teams of of highly talented people who provided technical sales and service to electrophysiologists and hospitals throughout the mid-Atlantic area of the U.S. I’m also a graduate of Louisiana State University. One of the many benefits of being in the “corporate world” is exposure to a variety of ways to lead and follow a vision. And, I’ve embraced being a servant leader—because it requires that I actively listen with empathy and with a desire to help. After retiring, I decided it was important to give back in a meaningful way to the Lord.

Keith Magnuson

Board of Directors
Operations and Development, McDonald’s Corporation

Our daughter suffered trauma which affected her (and us) deeply.  We reintroduced her to horses and being with a horse, learning how to communicate and the tranquility of a ranch helped her to find solid ground.  We heard about Hope Reins on the radio in Chicago and came to see it while we were looking for a home.  Both my wife and I felt that God had lead us specifically to Hope Reins and He had a purpose for us.  We have been thoroughly involved since 2014.

Kim Tschirret

Board of Directors
Founder & CEO

I didn’t even realize I was a session kid until we got further along in ministry. When I was a child, I didn’t have a Hope Reins or Jesus, but I did have a horse where I continually found comfort and safety. God always works in us in ways that apply to us and what I discovered with the growth of Hope Reins was true personal healing and unconditional love from a loving Father.

Linda Dyer
Board of Directors

I have been volunteering at Hope Reins for many years.  My love of horses is what brought me here initially, where I volunteer weekly on the equine support team.  As I began to learn more about Hope Reins’ mission, I felt called by God to help with the hurting children coming through our gates as well.  In addition to my horse activities, I now lead one-on-one mentoring sessions with the kids.

Lori Accordini

Board of Directors
Director of Strategic Partnerships for Radeas Labs

I had the opportunity to enjoy the community partnership with Hope Reins in the past while working as the Director of Missions at Summit Church in Durham, NC. I also had friends whose children went through Hope Reins’ programs and are living healthy, vibrant walks with Jesus today.  I fell in love with Hope Reins the first time I stepped on the property—God is healing lives in this place! The brokenness that I see in myself, and that I witness on the ranch in others, is the very thing that draws us near the heart of our Savior. He loves healing people.

Stavien D. Harrison

Board of Directors
Founder & CEO of FAITH OVER FEAR Homes, LLC

Equine therapy at Hope Reins created a space to find real Hope & Healing for my family. Feeling lost in life is something many people experience at different points. It can be unsettling and overwhelming, but it’s important to remember that it’s also a common part of personal growth and self-discovery. The human-horse connection helped my family navigate through a challenging phase through nonverbal communication.
