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.
She spent over ten years learning about spiritual gifts and how to use them to create a better life for herself. This journey led her to write her second book The Truth About Spiritual Gifts.
Her writing is a mix of perspectives, experiences, knowledge, humor and sarcasm. At times these vastly different sides of her experience will make an appearance, much to the delight (or confusion) of others.
De enjoys music, dancing, comedy, reading, singing, teaching and writing. Finding humor in everyday life comes easy for her. Friends have often told her she should be a stand-up comedian.
De has twenty years of writing, public speaking, teaching and coaching experience. She is an author, speaker, and teacher of living a spirited life.
