The DBB Team

Karynda Kearns: President and CEO of Drive by Blessings, wife to Brandon Kearns who is the President of Pulver Aviation, and mother to 3 sons.

Founded by her 2 young sons, Kearns has facilitated the growth of Drive By Blessings into becoming the great nonprofit organization it is today. Her passion for helping Veterans is attributed to her involvement with the Honor Flight orgnanization and also from her 2 grandfathers and uncle, being brave Veterans themselves. Her passion for serving others is derived from past and painful experiences that taught her powerful lessons about removing the focus from pain and channeling that focus into helping others. All of the above has led to the creation and evolution of Drive By Blessings and what it is today, with Kearns passions being infused into the fibers of the organization, acting as the catalyst for building its foundation and powerful mission to build stronger children, families, and communties, all through the acts of services they provide our Veterans who need them.
