Rochette & Matt Dahler
Rochette & Matt Dahler are highly accomplished entrepreneurs, franchisors, and parents of three children. They reside in Springfield Missouri, where Rochette's passion for creating environments for young children to grow and flourish came to life with her creation of Little Sunshine's Playhouse, a nationally branded preschool franchise system.
Their long-time passion has been to develop cognitive, social, emotional and physical abilities in young children in a way that was not being delivered in the field of Early Childhood Education previously. The work at the Pediatric Brain Foundation is an extension of that passion and dream that all children should be able to grow healthy and enjoy their childhood. They have stepped into their roles as executive board members and advocates for change in pediatric neurology and neuro-oncology.
Gillian Harrington is a member of the Board of Directors for the Pediatric Brain Foundation. She receives and manages grant applications and communicates and responds to the needs of our recipient families. Gillian has a great passion for the cause of the foundation and enjoys meeting impacted children.
