Deanna Oswalt, Office Assistant

Deanna Oswalt, known around the office as Dede, was born and raised in Sarasota, FL.  She attended Booker High School’s VPA program, Sarasota High School and graduated from Riverview High School.  After high school, she attended Manatee Community College, seeking a degree in legal assisting.

Dede worked as a Resident Director, Client Associate, and Executive Assistant at several local financial planning offices from 1995 through 2012.  She then worked at a chiropractic office as the Financial Chiropractic Assistant for several years.  In 2016, as our client list expanded, our office found that we were in need of an Office Assistant to work directly with the Legal Assistants on their client files.  With her vast office experience, Dede fit our needs perfectly.

Since 2016, Dede has worked as our part time Office Assistant.  On a day to day basis, her tasks vary based upon the office needs at any given point.  She assists in ordering medical records, reviewing client files for any missing documentation, organizing client files, archiving records, handling client calls, assisting with trial preparation, and scanning all incoming documents.

When Dede is not juggling all of the client files for our office, she spends her time juggling her home life with her significant other, Shawn.  Together they have two boys, Jacob and Luke.  She also helps to care for her parents and her grandma, who still live in the Sarasota area.
