Hi there, My name is Deanna and I have been around animals my entire life. I grew up in a rural area where I was exposed to all types of animals. Along with having cats and dogs, I also raised chicken and pigs, and showed them at fairs across the state. Currently, I have a Terrier mix named Dooney, a Labrador/Pitbull mix named Nala, a wire-haired Dachshund named Stewart, a Boxer named Hank, and 3 cats. Maverick is a gray short-hair, and Charlie and Jester who are both seal-point Siamese. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Education, and teach full time. I am now in a relief position at ROCAH, so you will still see me some! In my spare time I love being outside with my dogs, off-roading with my boyfriend, and going on adventures with my friends.
