I’M A business strategist and Growth CONSULTANT, TRAVEL JUNKIE, ICE CREAM FEIGN, BOY MAMA, FOOTBALL COACH WIFEY, BLUE - HAIRED, NEW-IDEA-BY-THE-MINUTE KINDA WOMAN.

Hi, I'm DeAnna.
Your New              
Growth Strategist.

Business as we know it has been forever changed - but with change, comes so many great things. Innovation, being one of the greatest. Some of today's most incredible companies were birthed during some of the toughest times in history (Instagram, Disney, IBM). Why? Because when there is pressure, when things around us seem to be out of our control and it feels that there's no way out - the curious Entrepreneurs like you find a way.

I spent 10 years working inside the corporate offices of some of the US's biggest retailers, as a Buyer, Strategy Manager, Merchandising Director, Logistics Analyst, Merchant. Fast forward to today, I ditched the corporate life to be the driving force of innovation and revenue behind small and midsize businesses like yours.
