Employee Spotlight

Desiree Phelps

Meet Desiree Phelps, one of our Accounting Specialists! She works on Account Receivables and handling claims and files that end up out of balance.

Name: Desiree Phelps

Position: Accounting Specialist III

Favorite Apple: A Golden Delicious picked right off the tree is my favorite for sure! I have such fond memories of climbing the huge Golden Delicious trees that my dad had in our orchard and picking the biggest apple I could find right off the tree and enjoying every last juicy bite.  No other apple compares to that.

Favorite Cherry: My favorite cherry is Orondo Ruby for its firmness and sweet tart flavor.

Favorite part of working at Chelan Fresh: My favorite part about working at Chelan Fresh is my co-workers.  We have a great team here that works hard but we love to laugh and joke around and have fun too!

Favorite thing to do outside of work: My husband and I have four kids and we love to follow all of their activities that they participate in each year. I also have started and coach a sand volleyball club in Chelan that has kids from ages 8-17 participating and traveling as teams to compete all over the state of Washington. The City of Chelan recognized the popularity of this program and supported us by adding sand courts at the local park that are used all day long.  We even host tournaments now. Chelan Fresh has also stepped up and supported the volleyball club called Kahiau which means “To give back”. I am very thankful to work for an employer like Chelan Fresh who supports community programs such as Kahiau.
