De is an English major who never wanted to teach but her love of linguistics and editing makes her grateful to be Research Analyst at Quester. She would tell you every day that there is great joy working with a team who deeply appreciates the power of words and has the ability to communicate to clients with both efficiency and abundance.
She often drives from St. Louis to Des Moines to be in the office, in part for training, but also because the Quester team is like settling in with family you enjoy, or at the very least, a chance to sit amongst a smorgasbord of talented people who are visionary, driven and full of wit.
She and her husband Jim were married in Las Vegas and were once incredibly interesting. Now they have a mortgage, a minivan, a compost pile and 3 children who daily remind them that genetics are fascinating/puzzling – requiring different parenting techniques and pop tart options. They have 1 dog and 2 cats. DeAnn is continually fascinated and floored by the amount of detail that Quester’s open-end questions reveal and how excited her dog is to see her every single day.
