De has the unique ability to blend spirit, humor, simplicity and realism into her books, coaching and speaking engagements. Embracing her wildly diverse life experiences enables her to truly “get” where people are coming from.
She grew up in poor, racially divided areas in Arkansas. As an adult De experienced fifteen countries and eight U.S. states. Those experiences reflect in her writing, humor and interaction with others.
De reached a point in her life where she realized her life wasn’t working. She chose to learn another way of life and let go of the beliefs and behaviors that kept her unhappy.
Her work experience and diverse life experience provided the depth of understanding she needed to release the childhood traumas she describes in her first book Born a Poor, Black, Indian, White Girl: Overcoming Childhood Trauma and Living a Spiritual Life.
