Dr. Deanna Stewart
Founder, President, CEO
Dr. Deanna Stewart, DNP, RN has been a registered nurse for fifteen years. She graduated from Winston-Salem State University with her BSN. She received her MSN from Chamberlain University and her DNP from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
While attending UNC-Chapel Hill, Dr. Stewart conducted a study for her DNP proposal defense titled, "Implementing a Safe Space for African American Employees to Develop Individualized Racism Recovery Plans." The study allowed African American employees who had experienced racism throughout life to meet, vent, share commonalities, learn coping strategies, develop racial trauma recovery plans, and get on a path of healing and maintenance. As racial injustices continued around America and beyond, it became apparent that Black mental health was in imminent danger. There needed to be a release or an outlet so Black minds remained stable and healthy, and spaces were imperative at this point. Dr. Stewart's passion for incorporating special areas in organizations for African Americans and people of African descent led to the development of MyALLy Stewart Diversity Consulting.
Dr. Stewart enjoys spending time with her family, exercising, and watching movies.
