Deneisha began her career working in the area of Adult Education at Hofstra University. She then transitioned into the nonprofit sector taking on a variety of direct service, clinical, management and leadership roles for programs servicing very challenging populations such as mentally ill substance abusers, chronically homeless individuals and families, and people with special medical concerns such as HIV/AIDS. More recently, Deneisha has been providing facilitation, consulting services and professional development to educational, government & non-profit institutions. She is also an Adjunct Professor at Metropolitan College of NY and has taught undergraduate courses such as Statistics for Groups, Critical Thinking, Community Psychology, Social Policy and Values & Ethics. Deneisha also serves as Chair of the Board at The Urban Wild, a NYC-based non-profit dedicated to making sustainable agricultural technology more accessible to areas affected by food insecurity.
Deneisha is a fierce advocate for oppressed people and their communities. She has helped to build several partnerships in high poverty communities and worked with clients to develop anti-racist practices as well as improve diversity, equity, inclusion and representation for their staff and stakeholders. She also has a special interest in issues related to gender and sexuality. Her background in psychology and social work has made her an empathic leader known for her fairness, integrity, and ability to move groups towards action and change. She is gifted at developing leaders, team management, and creating tools and systems related to targets, measurements and quality controls.
Deneisha has a Bachelors degree with a double major in Psychology and Political Science from Hofstra University. She also has two Masters degrees, one in Forensic Psychology and the other in Social Work with a concentration in Organizational Management and Leadership. In 2012, she founded Rent-N-Expert LLC, a consulting firm focused on projects aimed at "impacting the greater good." In 2019, she partnered with two colleagues to merge those services and form a new firm. She is currently a Managing Partner of Blue Compass Group LLC where she manages the retreats division.
As a first-generation American born and raised in the Bronx, NY, Deneisha understands how and why her story is unlikely and could have been very different. She is committed to using her resources, access and voice to help others. In the rare occasion that she has down time, Deneisha enjoys traveling, reading and live music. She has offices in NYC & Atlanta and can be reached at [email protected].
As a natural born leader and true lover of all people, Deneisha has built a strong reputation as a “consultant with a heart” who has over 15 years of experience in strategic planning, group facilitation and retreats used to build strong teams so they can achieve results-based outcomes.
