MEET THE FOUNDER
OurErrands is co-founded by two cousins Dr. DeShawn Stevenson and Justice Miranda. Together, DeShawn and Justice have brought their family’s values to form a company and ensure that “The Assistants” at OurErrands become apart of your family.
CO-FOUNDER / CEO
Dr. DeShawn Stevenson is a licensed pharmacist based in Atlanta, Georgia. He first had the idea to create OurErrands when, as a young pharmacist, he received multiple questions about the location and delivery of products within the retail stores he managed. DeShawn received a phone call from an elderly patient one day who cried over the phone because she did not have a family member available to retrieve the essential items she needed. As an entrepreneur, he saw the need for personal assistant services to grow business endeavors. DeShawn realized that his purpose in life was to help those in need, both through pharmacy and also through a myriad of non-traditional avenues.
CO-FOUNDER / COO
Born in Ventura California, raised in Oxnard, and groomed in Simi Valley; Justice Miranda matured in Atlanta, Georgia. At Clark Atlanta University, she majored in Business Administration, and got her dual degree in Business Management and Supply Chain Management. After numerous jobs personal assisting small business owners, franchises, and even celebrities, Justice decided to partner with her cousin on this business venture. This company is a family owned business geared to helping others, in every aspect of the word; and it is a true testament to everything she stands for. Whether you’re a college student in need of a job for business experience or a super busy small business owner in need of a little organization and assistance in your life; OurErrands can help you.

Nick is an investor and entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience in building and growing companies. He built a bootstrapped business and sold it to a strategic. When it comes down to it, he’s a Metrics and Numbers geek at heart! With dreams of traveling and addicted to football (i.e., soccer), he has a longer-term goal to port/run a business to Europe.

When he’s not off adventuring, you can find Nick relaxing and fly fishing on the lake.
