Her focus is working with foster parents and relative caregivers in coaching on key strategies in working through Trauma, understanding Family Time and other premiere educational curriculums. She also extends her expertise in working with licensed families who are working through compliance agreements. It has always been a career goal for her to work for UW Alliance as Deanna prides herself in helping the caregiver community navigate the DCYF system as well as provides support. She makes it her number one goal to let them know how valued they are for the jobs they do for our children in the Child Welfare system.

She started her career in 1994 with Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration as a Residential Counselor. Then in 2002, she joined Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) as a caseworker. Deanna’s case management experience is extensive, she has held positions in Child Protective Services, Child Welfare Services, Intake, Placement Coordinator, Unified Home Studies, and Foster Care Rate Assessments and Adoption/Guardianship Program Consultant 3. In 2018, Deanna accepted a position at DCYF HQ in Constituent Relations and a year later moved into the Program Managers position over Family Time.
