Warriors Heart Founder and President Josh Lannon expressed gratitude, “We’re very fortunate to have Christina Moreno as our new Executive Director to lead our operational, clinical and medical teams as Warriors Heart continues to grow and expand our healing services for frontline protectors. Christina’s been an integral part of our executive team since 2016, and understands our warrior community.”

I am honored to lead this unique team of individuals who all have a 'warrior' connection, either by being a frontline protector and/or having a loved one who served. My personal life has been affected by chemical dependency, alcoholism, and PTSD. And I understand the clients, and admire them and their family members for the courage to accept the challenge of a lifetime of change.”
