Homeless at 21, Homeowner at 24
there's a plethora of adjectives you can use to describe our leader; dedicated, daring, dual, driven, demanding, disciplined, dependable... there's almost one for every one of her talents! as the self-proclaimed "Jill with many Skills", Desirae' lives and breathes healing and restoring communities holistically!
She has a B.S in Communications and a Minor in Women's Studies; Certified Yoni Steam Practitioner, Healing Circle Facilitator, and as of Jan 2020 a Full Spectrum Birth Worker (with an emphasis on Lactation, Abortion/Miscarriage, & Post-partum); First Aid/CPR/BBP Certified, Construction Ready graduate along with several more professional credentials and certifications... aspiring to be a world renowed herbalist and doula, and possibly attorney one day!
her life experiences bring the ultimate value to our holistic approach; there's nothing she can't do or won't figure out how to lol but she specializes in:
organizing. consulting. healing. researching. typing. minimizing the unecessary, maintaining peace and balance, and maximizing potential.... we probably should've led with, she's a Virgo Sun Sag Rising Scorpio Moon :)

from the perfect balance of maternal motivation and a vivid vision, Desiraé has combined all parts of herself to create a solution for all.
7 days after graduating from Appalachian State University in December 2012, Desirae' Dillon born in Roanoke, VA, moved to Atlanta, GA. The transition was nothing less than a whirlwind, however with perseverance and passion Desirae', also donned "Sunni D", made lavender lemonade if you will....
After a short, yet eye opening year, Desirae' organized a small winter clothes giveback; that spring would be a can food drive that she even got her employer at the time to support big time! Using the summer to volunteer with other organizations and network with key culture influencers, she was able to sponsor a back to school giveback at Stars & Strike Entertainment Center; the support from this initiative also allowed her to donate school supplies to several first time teachers in GA, NJ, and CT. The year would round out with a wristband fundraising campaign that allowed her to do yet another winter giveback (this time with hats and gloves and volunteer support from Young Generation Movement).
wow, she had no idea handing snacks and water out of her VW Beetle would turn into something people wanted to give their time, treasure or talent to; early 2015 a close friend would donate a gift that allowed her to file for 501c3 status, and the rest is HERstory...
