Deida was born & raised in Sun Valley, where she once worked at the Shelter. These days Deida still calls the Wood River Valley home where she works as a jewelry artist. Deida & her husband Duane both love animals which has made an impression on their 9 year old daughter Skylar, whose world revolves around her love of all animals! Like her mom, Skylar dreams of growing up to have her very own animal sanctuary – & has started by volunteering at the Shelter.
Deida’s four legged family members include a chocolate lab, Whiskey, two dachshunds, Rodeo & Dusty, a kitty, and a variety of other small animals (including a parrot!).
Some of Deida’s favorite things are camping, fly fishing, hiking, running, traveling, cooking and creating art!
