Deanna is the co-founder of 1776 Wealth and is the firm's Chief Operating Officer. Her decade of experience at UBS in positions of increasing roles and responsibilities make her well suited to lead the firm's operations.
Deanna earned her bachelor's degree in business management with a concentration in finance from North Carolina State University. She started her career at NY Life, moved to SunTrust in their Private Banking area and then to UBS where she has excelled.
In her current role as COO, Deanna manages the operations and people of 1776 Wealth.

Outside of the office, Deanna is an avid horse lover, a passion she's had since she began riding at age 6. She currently rides at Mariposa Farms in Canton and volunteers with Bethany's Equine and Aquatic Therapy Services, Inc. (BEATS), where she assists with equine therapy for special needs children.
When not working or riding horses Deanna leads organizations in volunteer work. One of her favorites is the Children's Restoration Network in Atlanta. She planned and organized a Back 2 School campaign to collect school supplies for homeless children, while also helping to sort and fill all the new book bags that were collected. She then coordinated and volunteered at the organization's Back 2 School Day of Readiness, where children receive health screenings, haircuts, their new filled book bags, and can participate in games.
Ronald McDonald House also has a special place in Deanna's heart. She organized a group volunteer activity at the Ronald McDonald House in Atlanta and has participated in the location's Bakers Club and Casserole Club.
Deanna is originally from Roanoke, Virginia, and now makes her home in Atlanta, Georgia, with her husband and son.
