After a career as a federal lobbyist in Washington, D.C,. Delanne has planted her roots full-time on the Emerald Coast. Two and a half years ago she moved to Santa Rosa Beach while still commuting to our Nation’s Capitol to provide advocacy for a national trade association. Some of her last duties when the pandemic hit included working with the President, Congress, FEMA and other agencies to ensure that her membership of automotive salvage small businesses received appropriate guidance and recognition as “essential workers”. As much as Delanne has loved her career, the spread of the coronavirus spurred her on to live in paradise full time and start a new career. Delanne has since gotten her real estate license which utilizes so many of her skill sets. She has also been active as a Walton County Volunteer Beach Ambassador. In that capacity, she provides beach keeping, turtle nesting education, and double red flag assistance. Delanne has also been active in helping the “Sassy Sisters”, a woman’s group within the Santa Rosa Golf and Beach Club, raise money for the Walton County Sheriff’s K9 program so they can acquire an additional dog (or two). Delanne is delighted with her decision to live and work full-time in a place that has the nicest people and the most beautiful environment imaginable.
