Deanna has spent most of her adult life in big cities-London, Madrid and now NewYork City. She loves the diversity, everyday street life and the simplicity of living in small spaces. As an avid cook, she is constantly excited by the array of food options, and is always on the lookout for a new discovery.
She comes from an entrepreneurial background, being part of founding a successful environmental, recycled goods company, as well as a small business owner. She is now happily working in the non-profit sector, using her skills and education to help advance the causes of amazing social-impact organizations.
Deanna is passionate about learning and knowledge. You will always find her signed-up for a class, attending an event or reading some book or blog. However, she attributes her greatest learning experiences to travel. She has always been fascinated by different cultures ...even as a kid her favorite class was World Cultures. She caught the travel bug in my early 20s, and have never looked back! When I started to explore the world, I truly started to discover new parts of myself. There is something about being outside my comfort-zone, opening my mind to different cultures and ways of life, and seeing the world first-hand.
Nancy is from Vancouver, Washington. There she lives with her parents, brother, and two younger sisters. She attended George Fox University to obtain a BS in Molecular and Cell Biology. She will begin medical school in 2017 with the goal to volunteer as a doctor with children with neurodevelopmental disabilities in the States and abroad. Nancy is passionate about science, outreach, women's health, and finding ways to mend healthcare disparities.
As a collaborator of the EntreNos App, she is particularly thrilled about the information that will be available to women in Mexico upon its completion. While volunteering with DGYG in Guanajuato and Oaxaca she had the opportunity to work with local organizations, local girls and women. Because of this experience Nancy is confident that the information in the App will serve as an incredible solution to the vast communication problems between women, the health care sector, government and non-government institutions dedicated to protecting and serving women and girls. Nancy feels honored to be working with this group of professional women volunteers to develop a much needed FREE product for the women of Mexico and hopefully at some stage, to women of the world!
