Deanne Marie is transforming the lives of women overwhelmed by the pressures of modern life with simple and elegant solutions for streamlining their home, enjoying meaningful relationships with family and friends, and creating the stress-free life of their dreams.

Author, award-winning speaker and in-demand inspirational leader, Deanne created Smart Solutions for Busy People™ to support women who feel out-of-control as they juggle work, home, family and friends. Her books, e-books and online resources provide both inspiration and take-action details for decorating, gift giving, organizing and entertaining to make everyday life and the holidays more meaningful, more joyful and more beautiful.

Growing up near Chicago, Deanne learned the arts of gift giving, entertaining, home decorating and more from her parents—creative and successful busy people who always found time for their families and friends. After obtaining a degree in journalism, followed by a Juris Doctorate degree from Drake Law School, Deanne moved to Las Vegas where for 19 years she enjoyed a successful career as a litigation attorney, served on the local bar association and was named one of the city’s “40 Under 40” by In Business Las Vegas. A committed member of her community who strongly believes in giving back, she also volunteers for a local non-profit organization that provides food and services to senior citizens.

Deanne’s professional background, real-life experience with time management, interior design coursework and an innate talent for performing gracefully under pressure, combine to give her a unique perspective. A dynamic speaker and charismatic writer, Deanne shares these insights to help her audience gain clarity and confidence by learning what to focus on – and what to let go.

Deanne is helping women take the leap from frenzied to fulfilled, knowing that as they create the beautiful, comfortable homes, simple meals in beautiful surroundings and holidays and special occasions of their dreams, they are also creating the foundation for lasting, meaningful relationships – and memories they will carry throughout their lives.
