Laetitia Palluat de Besset was a member of Heart’s Home USA for over 8 years. She served as its President from August 2008 to July 2013.
After graduating from Business School of Management in France (EDHEC, Lille), she worked in marketing departments in famous big companies such as Dannon and Total. She felt, however, that she was made for another calling and joined Heart’s Home for the first time as a Missionary in Haiti in 1999. She stayed there for 1 year and then went on with another two-year mission in Honduras. She completed a one-year program in Philosophy and Theology in France and was sent back to Haiti as a Heart’s Home community leader for two years. In 2007, she became a lay consecrated member and joined Heart’s Home permanently. Since then she has been using her numerous qualifications in business as well as her countless human qualities to advance the mission and vision of Heart’s Home.
During her almost 8 years of presence in Brooklyn, Laetitia was also particularly involved in our ministry in the neighboring housing projects, nursing homes and shelters.
