Biography: Deanna Elaine Schultz

As the daughter of an Air Force officer, Deanna Schultz constantly moved around the globe. She considers it a unique opportunity to have grown up in an environment in which she learned first‐hand about the world, not having to rely solely on a text book. “I have a great amount of respect for the opportunities my parents presented to us while growing up. While other parents pretty much kept their kids within the walls of military bases. My parents purposely chose to live in regular neighborhoods before moving onto my dad’s assigned Air Force base, allowing my siblings and me the freedom to learn that country’s language, customs and cultures.” As a young adult living in Europe, she started to see the world from a different perspective, one that would propel her into the world broadcast journalism.

Born in Fort Collins, Colorado as Deanna Elaine Reyes‐Ramirez, she is the oldest of four siblings. While in her last year of college in Germany with the University of Maryland, University College, she interned with the Armed Forces Network, and graduated in 1994 with a B.A. in Literature. Since then she has become an award‐winning, multi‐lingual journalist, working in both English and Spanish news markets. And, is now CEO and Co‐founder of D & G PRODUCTIONS. Using her talents and skills gained from the news industry, Deanna’s mission now is to empower people through creative activism, specifically documentaries… delivering messages that inspire dialogue and action.
