Wilderness First Responder
Hometown: Terre Hill, PA
This is Ben’s 16th year at the helm of Vista Verde Ranch, where he oversees ranch operations and keeps the staff focused on the VVR ethos of servant leadership and life change. When he is not at the ranch working, as he says, “with the best folks a guy could ever ask for,” Ben enjoys time at home with his wife of 23 years, Holly. These days, they are empty nesters, with two kids off in college and two living and working in Denver. In addition to VVR, and his golden retriever Finn, Ben loves his Philadelphia sports teams, listening to and playing music, coaching track and field at Steamboat Springs High School, and playing on the North Routt softball team. Fun Fact: Ben is the youngest of 49 grandkids.
