Deanna shares,

"I am a teacher, a hiker, a writer, a skier, a dreamer, a traveler, a wanderer, a camper, a photographer, a listener and a friend.  Things I enjoy most:  being outside, learning new things, spending time with friends, experiencing different cultures and listening to people's stories."
