Who is Deanne?
You’re probably wondering…who is Deanne? What are all the adventures? Well…here goes…I’m mother, a wife, a daughter, traveller and a dreamer. I believe experiences are more important than any possession. I’m motivated, passionate, and real. I’m headstrong, stubborn and a but also a crier. I love my family, real estate, essential oils, running, yoga, SUP, the mountains, the ocean. I’m the oldest of 3 children, born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. I currently live just outside of Edmonton in Spruce Grove with my husband and 3 boys.
I’m embarking on a new adventure. I’m inviting you to join me.
I’m a Realtor. I’ve been helping people buy and sell homes since 2007. I love it. I love my clients, I love my career. I’m motivated, passionate and a go getter. In 2016 I was in the top 10% of all Realtors on the Edmonton Real Estate Board, for MLS sales. I’ve been very successful, and I’m so grateful for that.
I’m a runner. My favourite is trail running, no pavement for this girl. I try to get to the mountains as much as possible to train for ultra marathons. Sometimes I race on a team, and sometimes I get crazy and solo an event. Check out http://www.sinister7.com/ and http://www.blackspurultra.com/ for a glimpse into that world.
I’m a yogi. My practice has been my rock, so many ways, at so many times. I have a strong physical practice. If (or once you get to) know me, this comes as no surprise. I also have a softer, spiritual side, the Deanne that loves the space yoga gives. I immerse myself in my practice, and I leave the world outside the mat. Whether it’s arm balances, sun salutations, meditation or pranayama; my practice is my rock.
I’m a traveller. My first big trip was my (at the time) bucket list trip to Greece at 19. It was a few years before I was able to travel again. Fast forward to 2006. My husband and I spent 3 weeks (our honeymoon), driving down the 101 along the Pacific. Since then I’ve traveled as much as possible. I`ve made amazing friends and connections. I’ve been to 4 continents, over 13 countries, countless cities and towns. I want to see the whole world, I want to share that with my family. My 3 favourite trips to date are: living in Mexico with my husband and kids for 5 weeks in 2014, taking my 2 youngest boys (and SIL) with me for 4 weeks in SE Asia February 2017, and my week in Iceland February 2016, with my husband. Stay tuned for more adventures…
I’m a student. This is a never ending process. How could I ever be a teacher without being a student? I want to experience all that the world has to offer. I’m thirsty for knowledge. Admittedly I sometimes have to learn lessons the hard way, but that’s me. Next up is SUP teacher training!
I’m a teacher. I believe that teaching is sharing. I treasure all of the lessons, trainings and experiences of my life. I want to share that with the world. I share everything I can. As a teacher I’m driven by passion. I strive to make a difference.
I’m a retreat leader. Combining my love of travelling, teaching and sharing has lead me to host many students both close to home and internationally. If you’ve never been on a retreat, you should! Upcoming events here. https://adventureswithdeanne.wordpress.com/deanne-travels/
