Our History

DESIREE WATSON

2000

WELLNESS INTERACTIVE INC.® was launched with Our Founder Desiree Watson, a leading advocate of sustainability and wellness.

Her creative mission influenced the wellness industry for over 30 years. The company focuses on helping corporations and non-profits committed to changing their trajectory to one of Community Social Responsibility, People, Planet, and Profit, and communicating their commitment to wellness and sustainability.  Ms. Watson, using her marketing background and having experienced a health crisis while pregnant with her daughter, became passionate about the major issues within the health care system and how to support the many communities affected.

Her message has always been “Capitalizing on your constituents’ interests in being well and protecting the environment, you will create brand loyalist while educating and preserving the well-being of the people and the community”. The company has over 30 registered wellness and sustainability brands which helps corporations and non-profits move to a wellness and sustainability model.  The brands are exceptionally useful when an organization is ready to launch a new product or establish great visibility in targeted communities that need support.
