It was founded off a love of characters, a love of performing arts, and a love of kids! it was started by Destiny Meilleur when she was just 16. She loved the idea of bringing kids their childhood heroes on their birthdays and thus Princesses in the Park was born.

Destiny has been in shows such as the Addams Family, Chicago, The Brothers Grimm Spectaculaton, and Radium Girls. Destiny also did the daily announcements in her high school, Archbishop Jordan Catholic High School, and she was an announcer for the school talent show two years in a row. She also could be found being an anchor or weather announcer for NAIT’s 2nd Edition or NAIT NewsWatch. She loves to share her passion with anyone who will listen. Destiny would find like-minded individuals at school or extracurriculars to help her play different characters. She still loves to hire enthusiastic students to join the team.
Destiny graduated from the NAIT Television broadcasting program in December 2021.
