I’m Catherine Tucker, a small town, chocolate-loving, coffee-craving, God-fearing, fiction writer and blogger who lives deep in the heart of Texas. In my bi-weekly posts, I will be sharing fresh and engaging content from my insight, as well as other published authors, which I hope will be informative and inspiring.
I am so excited to introduce to you Deondriea Cantrice, one of the most dynamic women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Deondriea is a true success story! And I’m honored to include her in my Fierce Women series.
Statistics would have told you Deondriea would be a high school dropout living on welfare. That’s because Deondriea was a teen-mom. Despite having this life-changing event as a major obstacle to overcome, Deondriea persevered to become a celebrated author, motivational speaker, and youth coach.
Deondriea is also a marketing maven who has been able to not only build her brand, but she has been able to assist others in building a sustainable brand as well.
Deondriea was awarded the Distinction of Excellence Award by Stiletto Woman in Business Award (SWIBA) in 2014 and named a finalist for the SWIBA Author of the Year in 2014. She is intelligent, hardworking, and everything she does is done in excellence!
Please join me for an enthralling conversation with Deondriea!
