Deanna Machuca, Nonprofit Assistant

Deanna Machuca (Hopi), is Qalwungwa (Sun Forehead) from the Village of Shungopavi, located on Second Mesa.  Deanna started her career in hospitality as an ambassador for the Phoenician Resort and Spa. She was shortly promoted as a food and beverage supervisor for the Thirsty Camel and The Marketplace complexes. Forbes trained the Phoenician’s staff to exceed guest experience and worked alongside ambassadors to maintain their 4 Star 5 Diamond expectation for guests.

Just like in hospitality- she truly enjoys working and helping others to reach their true potential. She also enjoys spending with family and friends!
