Alessandra (Aley) Desiderio is the Development Officer at Colorado Lending Source. Colorado Lending Source provides access to capital, community, and resources to small business owners. As the primary development person for Colorado Lending Source, she is responsible for all business development activities and outreach related to the Main Street loan program, which includes all outreach to resource, economic development, local community and government organizations. Alessandra is the founder of CREW Childcare Rewards App, which strives to make childcare more affordable by sharing revenues with users. She created the app as a result of not having sufficient childcare options for herself, and ultimately having to hide her children under her desk to keep her job. The app works by encouraging parents to share information about providers in their area and giving providers access to low cost classroom resources and field trips.
