Deanna comes from a background in media and communications. She has always been fascinated by how information is conveyed to an audience. This led her to work in fundraising for 6 years at Public Outreach, a face-to-face and telephone fundraising agency that provides strategic solutions for non-profits and charities. Deanna helped train hundreds of fundraisers in effective, purposeful communication. Prior to joining Engage Presentations, Deanna was the Fundraising Administrator at Santropol Roulant (Meals on Wheels), a community food hub.
Deanna is fluent in both English and French. Outside of work, Deanna can usually be found knitting, crocheting, or discovering a new book in a cozy café.
