Desiree is our founder and mother/stepmother of three fantastic children, Griffin, Aedan, and Danielle. She created Pearachute out of her own frustrations with constantly having to reschedule Griffin’s activities because of unexpected changes in her family’s schedule. As a working mom, she wanted the activities her family invested in to be a source of happiness—not stress. Now, she loves dropping into All-Age classes with her kids on the weekends.
Prior to launching Pearachute, Desiree founded one of the world’s first crowdfunding platforms, GiveForward. She is passionate about entrepreneurship and the impact it has on our communities and spends her free time mentoring and teaching entrepreneurs.
