Deanna Dalton

My name is Deanna, and I am very excited to join the Enterprise Team as an Area Supervisor! A little bit about myself: I was born in Miami, Florida and grew up near the coast of central Florida. I attended Florida International University where I received my undergraduate degree in Hospitality Management. I worked as a restaurant manager at the CheeseCake Factory for several years and moved around the country spending time in Cincinnati, Washington D.C., and St. Louis. Later, I returned to school in Florida and studied Biology and also became certified as an Emergency Medical Technician (and worked in the medical field a few years).

Soon after I welcomed my son, Lantz, into this crazy world. I realized I needed to find a job that allowed me to spend more time with him, and I wanted to raise him in a town that offered more opportunities and better schools. I moved to Denver in 2014 with my husband and son, and started working as a Health Inspector with the City. That job included inspecting DPS kitchens, which I found to be really fascinating, with their own sets of challenges.

Two years later I learned about this job opening and applied- and here I am now! That’s my life story in a nut shell. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all and I am thrilled to be part of this team!
