Recognizing the importance of research and planning to drive business success, Deana likens operating without a plan to embarking on a road trip without a map – feasible, yet longer and more costly.

Deana's consulting approach is enriched by coaching and leadership development programs rooted in curriculums she crafted while mentoring numerous Tribal members throughout her distinguished career. Her prowess lies in aiding casino clients with strategic planning, operational enhancements, and the exploration of cutting-edge technology and customer trends.

A distinguished Advisory Board Member for SLOTCO, a Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures financing solution for Indian gaming, Deana's academic achievements include a B.A. in Communications from Marylhurst University. She also holds a University of Nevada, Reno Gaming Management Certificate, a UNR Executive Development Certificate, and recently completed an Executive & Professional Coaching Master’s Certificate from the University of Dallas, Texas.
