About Desha

Hi, I’m Desha Peacock!

I love travel, fashion, art, & design… AND I love hearing great, inspirational stories of people doing what they love. I’m a career counselor & really dig my job b/c I help people figure out what to do with their lives, & since this is a topic I’ve been thinking about most of my life, I decided it was time to take my own advice & try to really tune in to how I can live my life to its fullest, which for me involves creativity.

So, I made a list of all the things I love, and just to be wild & crazy, I decided to roll them into a TV Show.  And thus, The Desha Show was born.  I’m partaking in my own experiment- to fully devote my time and energy to what I love, stay positive through the trials, and see what happens!

What is The Desha Show?

The show is devoted to showcasing the work of artists, interior designers, fashionistas and other creative types who are living in their “sweet spot”, a self-defined place where one is living a fulfilling and meaningful life… living their dream. In my cutey pie town of Brattleboro, VT there are SO many creative people and I hope to expose the work of these artists whom you would not otherwise know. It’s great for them, and it’s great for you! Watch the show right now. Right HERE.

When Desha was a youngster, she asked her mother, “Why did I have to be born in such a boring place as Arkansas?” Since then, she’s made it her mission to explore the world. She earned a Master’s degree in Intercultural Service, Leadership and Management from the School for International Training, is a certified Global Career Development Facilitator and has worked globally from London to Costa Rica. An avid seeker of beauty and culture, she’s explored the bazaars of Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Central America.  She’s slept in two-dollar hostels in Guatemala and boarded million dollar yachts in the Mediterranean. In Tunisia, she rode a camel backwards in her best friend’s wedding procession.

Desha is currently the Director of Career Development at Marlboro College in southern Vermont, and in her private practice, she coaches creative people on expanding their businesses and achieving their dreams. In 2011, she was awarded BCTV’s “Best Series Producer of the Year Award” and has styled and produced area fashion shows, in addition to being the Red Carpet Hostess for Hospice’s Wild Night on the Catwalk, drawing a crowd of more than 600.
