Deirdre has family roots in Philadelphia but just made the city of brotherly love her home in May 2015. Now she’s wondering what took her so long to get here! She has fallen in love with the city, particularly West Philly where she resides. She enjoys exploring her new city, road trips to visit friends, and trips to the dog park with her fur-baby, Charlotte.
Deirdre has a passion for youth mentoring, having worked for Big Brothers Big Sisters in Nashville and Boston for 7 years. She is excited to be part of a program like DREAM, as it wraps its arms around a community and takes responsibility for the youth in that community.
Deirdre holds a BS in Psychology from Eastern Michigan University and a MS in Psychology from Walden University.
