She serves as an enlightening resource on how to approach every challenge, problem, and trial with a collective “How can we resolve this and move forward?” mentality through inspiring keynotes, interactive seminars, instructional videos and blogs.

She’s a featured author in the book “Love Meets Life” and shares some of her conversations in the upcoming book “Campaign Chronicles,” due out in April.

Deedra is a recipient of the Tempe Human Relations Commission ‘Martin Luther King Jr Diversity Award’ as well as the Phoenix Human Relations Commission’s ‘Living the Dream’ award.

Deedra has run for political office and previously served as an elected Vice-Chair for the Arizona Democratic Party.

A frequent media resource, she has been profiled and quoted in print media as well as interviewed on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX affiliates, and local radio stations for her unique perspectives on politics, community advocacy, and life.

Originally from Arkansas, Deedra happily lives with her husband of twenty-plus years in Scottsdale, Arizona, and is always willing to engage in uncomfortable conversations that can bring us closer together.
