Desirée has worked in the disability field for nearly two decades, supporting families with children with developmental disabilities across the lifespan. She has been an active member on several statewide committees to influence system policy and procedures to improve services and supports for children with special needs and their families. She is a wife and mother of 3 children. Her eldest son, now in his twenties, has Down syndrome. Through her experiences as a parent, as well as a professional in the disability field supporting families from the early years to the later years, she came to understand and appreciate two fundamental things: 1) parents need each other on this journey, and 2) family supports such as child care are integral to family resilience and quality of life for parents raising children with special needs. This is the impetus behind the founding of The SNPC. Desirée completed her undergraduate studies in Criminal Justice at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and graduate studies in Sociology and The New School in New York City.
