Prior to coming to Root & Rebound, DeJone was a volunteer at a women’s rehabilitation home in Fresno, CA. She counseled women and taught classes there.  Although she has been system impacted herself, she is the first in her family to breakthrough the mental and physical barriers her family has faced. DeJone doesn’t allow her past to define her destiny, Instead, she uses it to reach back and help others walk through some of the same circumstances she’s faced. 

On a personal level, DeJone is very passionate about helping others discover their gifts and worth. She loves spending time with family, traveling, running, fellowshipping at church, and attending conferences that assist in her spiritual growth. She believes in self care, mental health, and she is a woman after God’s own heart.  She enjoys being a student of life, and in DeJone’s eyes all things are possible. 2 Corinthians 5:7 is one of her favorite scriptures,”For we live by faith, not by sight”

At Root and Rebound, DeJone is the Social Service Manager at the Fresno office. She looks forward to working with her team to serve the Central Valley.

Faith and prayer are the vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them. – Mahalia Jackson

Why do you come to work at Root & Rebound every day?

As a woman who has personally been system impacted, it brings me joy to use some of my personal and professional experiences to encourage, uplift, and motivate system impacted individuals. I know what it feels like to be judged and rejected because of past decisions. But I also know that if you make a decision to reach your goals against all odds and become the person you were created to be regardless of your past, and the opinions of others you WILL reach your targeted destination. I am looking forward to helping others discover their true worth as I have. It’s an honor and a privilege to work at R&R.
