In preparation for her career, Ms. Desjarlais completed English coursework at Lewis-Clark State College. She went on to study business management at the University of Phoenix. For her professional excellence, she received a Collaboration Award from the Nonprofit Network of Southwest Washington and a Holiday Heroes Award from the Greater Vancouver Chamber of Commerce.

She hopes to advance to an executive director position in the coming years and eventually expand Fosterful across the country.
