Deanna is a native Floridian, born in the Tampa Bay Area. She grew up with a love of the outdoors, fishing, scuba diving, jet skiing, wake and knee boarding. During her high school years she was a Varsity cheerleader, cheering on the sidelines and being tossed in the air as a flyer, and loving every moment. In her senior year, Deanna began working as a sterilization technician at a dental office where she then became a certified Dental Assistant. She graduated high school with a full ride scholarship to the local community college where she received her AA degree. While working in the dental office as a dental assistant, she realized she would like to further her career and she completed the dental hygiene program and became a licensed registered dental hygienist. From there, she continued to work in the dental field, meeting her now husband Scott, an Endodontist, along the way.
Deanna and Scott married on the beach in Costa Rica in 2013. Deanna is the bonus mom to Scott’s two kids, Jonah and Cosette, who she loves like her own and a dog mom to Kaija, a boxer, and Lyra, an Italian greyhound. Scott and Deanna relocated from Tampa to Bonita Springs in 2016, establishing Your Endodontic Specialist. Deanna switched roles, becoming the Practice Administrator from 2016 - 2022. Missing the direct personal interaction, Deanna then decided to pursue a more fulfilling role in providing advanced skin care treatments.
Deanna was raised by a Mom that valued skin health and a Bonus Mom that was a Licensed Esthetician, obviously valuing skin health, so it has always been a part of Deanna’s life. Deanna will say, following her heart and finding passion again by becoming a Licensed Esthetician has been very rewarding. Deanna prides herself in providing skin treatments that produce visible results in a calm and relaxed environment. She is also very selective with the product lines she carries, only using and recommending products that are clean and scientifically backed. Deanna is a great listener, acknowledging your concerns and goals and helping you achieve them effectively and efficiently. Deanna believes the mind-body connection is very important and must not be overlooked. She will discuss with you your current lifestyle and determine if there are modifications she would recommend to help you achieve your goals. Your skin will be glowing from within!
Deanna is an Ashtanga yoga practitioner, and a certified yoga teacher since 2017. She practices yoga, meditation, and breath work daily and will tell you it has completely changed her life. Her yoga practice opened her eyes to a much more healthy lifestyle than she was living prior. She eats and advocates a whole food diet, comprised of anti inflammatory ingredients, avoiding processed foods and refined sugar, and reads the labels on all packaged foods before purchasing. Her husband Scott is an amazing cook and 90% of their meals are made at home. They also make their own nut milk! She makes sure to drink her recommended water per body weight daily which aids in the glowing skin. She continues to learn and grow her experience in skin care by attending workshops and continuing education whenever possible. You may also find her practicing acro yoga with her husband on the beach at sunrise or sunset.
Paddle boarding is another favorite. Deanna and her husband enjoy exploring the backwaters of southwest Florida. Many times they will each have a dog riding on the front of their paddle boards. It’s quite a cute sight! SUP yoga off the beach is something else Deanna enjoys, either taking a class or just flowing on her own. Deanna has also found a love for indoor rock climbing and her and her husband enjoy climbing together. They have climbed in Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix and Flagstaff. When traveling to Arizona to visit the kids, hiking as a family in and around Sedona is a favorite. In the winter Deanna and her family travel to Utah to ski and enjoy time with family. The snow in Utah is the best! SPF is very important to Deanna as she spends a lot of time outdoors. Reapplying every 2 hours is very important and she will always be reminding those around her to reapply.
Deanna is also a plant lover! She has over 15 indoor plants, and her yard is filled with many different varieties of plants, flowers, bushes, and fruit trees. Deanna will tell you having indoor plants will make you a happier person! Photography is another hobby of Deanna’s, always acknowledging the beauty in every day life and capturing it along the way. Her photo library has over 36,000 pictures.
