Works at the Wimberly library as Coordinator, Academic Support Services. Deepa has a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. During her internship, she served the LGBTQ community. She believes most of us live in the illusion of separateness. Cultivating our seed of mindfulness is one way to help us treat each other with compassion rather than react through this illusion of separation.

Her favorite quotes:

“The remedy is to look deeper and recognize that we human beings are physically, mentally and emotionally the same.” Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama. “An Eye for an Eye Makes the Whole World Blind.” --- M. K. Gandhi.

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” ---Viktor E. Frankl.
