We believe that building a generation of emotionally healthy and resilient families starts early.
Puja (CEO/Founder) started her career at the Obama White House, where she designed services for young families, and advised on national child and family policy. Then she moved to the World Bank, where she worked on making quality maternal and child healthcare and nutrition accessible to a every family globally.
All of this meant she spoke to hundreds of families with young children all over the UK, US, India, and Madagascar. In every conversation, she heard from parents who loved their children, and wanted to make sure they had the best start in life. But she saw that all over the world, parents didn't have the support they needed to give their children this start.
So Puja started Devie to make this early parenting support accessible to every family. Her vision is for every parent to feel they aren't alone, and for every child to have the strong foundation they need to thrive in school, work, relationships and beyond.
