Kevan Ouellette began working at the Museum of the White Mountains as the Administrative Assistant in August of 2014. An Army veteran, Kevan spent four years as an airborne infantryman stationed at Fort Polk, LA where he helped train U.S. forces before they deployed to combat theaters overseas. He took part in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was deployed from 2004-2005 where he earned the rank of Sergeant. After his enlistment he earned a B.S. in Professional Golf Management with a minor in Business from North Carolina State University.
