Evangelical Alum Chaplain Juliana Lesher, M.Div., Ph.D., BCC, oversees more than 900 chaplains across the country. Her career and spiritual journey caring for patients and Veterans in need has taken her west to Los Angeles, north to Fargo, south to San Antonio and east to Washington, D.C., where she lives and serves as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Director of VA Chaplaincy. A main focus of the VA Chaplaincy is assisting Veterans in finding the way to better health through spirituality. Her work over two decades to help these patients is informed by her own painful experiences with hopelessness, and the desire to serve Veterans impacted by war and service. Previously, Lesher received the 2016 VA Under Secretary’s Award for Excellence in
Chaplaincy, the 2013 Distinguished Service Award from the Military Chaplains Association, the 2013 VA Secretary’s Heart and Hands Award, the 2009 VA Chaplaincy Best Practice Award and the 2008 VA Secretary’s Award for Excellence in Chaplaincy.
