Deana graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a BA in English, first launching her career in secondary education. She then decided to transfer her teaching skills to the career consulting/search placement field, helping place all levels of professionals in various functionsáas well as industries. In addition to playing match-maker for candidates and employers, Deana played an integral role guiding candidates in writing more effective resumes and preparing them for successful interviews.

After sixáyears, she found her niche in campus recruitment while working for Liberty Mutual Insurance, where she focused on recruiting MBA's for its Leadership Rotational Program. In October 2013, Deana was thrilled to join the FCC in a role that is a perfect combination of coaching students/candidates and fostering new business relationships. Outside of higheráeducation,áDeana enjoys spending time with her family, supporting the arts, and sharing the stage with her community musicalátheateráfamily.?
