Deia brower


Although I haven’t always resided in Oak Harbor, I have always called it home. After leaving the area during high school, I pursued higher education and earned a job in accounting.  With my daughter grown and attending college herself, I moved back and enrolled in Skagit Valley College, and later went on to finish my Bachelors with honors in Human Services and Interdisciplinary Studies at Western Washington University. When I wasn’t working diligently to finish my schooling, I spent my time volunteering at SPIN Café.  I have taken every opportunity I could to give back to the community I love.  I am eternally grateful for the homeownership opportunity Habitat for Humanity is providing.

I am the Director of Administrations and Communications at my church, Grace by the Sea Anglican. I have never owned a home before so this opportunity from Habitat for Humanity is by the Grace of God.
