29 Mar Deanna Atkins
Deanna has always been the bookworm of her family. Growing up, she would often be reading a book while her siblings played basketball games outside. She regularly devoured entire series of books, and was a regular fixture at the local bookmobile.
The bookmobile librarian would often bring a stack of books that she knew Deanna would enjoy. Deanna became a licensed teacher and worked in public schools for several years writing IEPs and lesson plans galore. Realizing that she was an introvert and needed more time alone, Deanna began working in school based social services. Meeting with clients in a smaller setting was great and it allowed Deanna to read all kinds of medical reports. A great deal of detailed documentation was required for this position. Deanna is thrilled about this next adventure which allows her to get back to her passion of reading. She is also teaching herself how to play guitar thanks to the many tools online.
