Founder - Marylouise "Duck" White-Petteruti 
The unique and innovative program that is the heart and soul of Domus Pacis was the loving creation of Duck White-Petteruti. The genesis for the respite program was a “girl trip to the mountains” that Duck planned and put into place with her ailing mother who was living with lung cancer. The week was transformative, and the experience inspired the creation of Domus Pacis. Since then, Domus Pacis has served more than 1,700 families, providing thousands with the opportunity to have their own healing week in the mountains.
