Hi, I’m Deon! I grew up in Zachary, Louisiana. I am currently attending Southern University Law Center with the intention of practicing family law. I had my daughter, Evelyn, in the fall of 2018. I love traveling and exploring new places. A plane ticket to anywhere with a rental car waiting for me is a solid vacation. I have a degree in mass communications with a concentration in public relations and a minor in political science from LSU. I have two rescue dogs at home and love helping with animal welfare efforts. My daughter’s first word was dog (or ‘gog’). I'm also always looking for ways to join the fight against Louisiana's domestic violence epidemic. As for my day job, I serve as the Executive Director of a conservative think tank. I spend the majority of my free time gardening, attempting to master my Canon camera, and reading.
