Global Change Agent + Digital Media Veteran
Charlotte native, DeAnne Wingate, is a 16 year digital evangelist who took a sabbatical from her corporate VP position at a major media company in NYC to find meaning and fulfill her calling.
After leaving Univision Interactive Media in 2010, Wingate ended up in India, working with girls forced into the sex slave trade and children living in slums. She returned to the U.S. in 2012 and established a 501(c)3 charitable organization, Rippled Purpose to fight human trafficking and child labor through education. Wingate also founded Blessed Lotus, a women’s apparel company, on the principles of social entrepreneurship, to financially support her mission.
Opening her heart to a road less traveled made it possible for this new whole-hearted life to unfold. Wingate’s life mission is to bring education to impoverished children around the world and she is passionate about propelling the message that companies can drive profits and make the world a better place.
Wingate is dedicated to sharing what she has learned to help others connect with their hearts. Find Meaning Now explores the lessons she has learned from the most painful events of her life.
Her eBook, “Finding Meaning: From the Inside Out”, is a road map to navigate through this challenging yet incredible life changing process.
Wingate wrote "Seeing Through FEAR" to change the perspective on fear. She believes all life experiences gives us the ability to learn so much. The key is not to run away, but charge ahead!
