Deanna Bufo Novak is the author of My Heritage Book and founder of its publisher, kidsHeritage, Inc. Her idea for this unique children's book started in early 2004, shortly after the birth of her daughter. After a year and a half of active development, she launched this very special personalized children's book.
Originally from New York, Deanna received a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications (Journalism and Sociology majors) from the University of Miami in 1996. She received her Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from Nova Southeastern University, where she served as Articles Editor on the Law Review. In 2001, Deanna received an LL.M. in Taxation from the University of Miami. She has been a member of the Florida Bar since October of 2000.
While completing her LL.M., Deanna began working as an associate for PricewaterhouseCoopers in Miami, where she later advanced to senior associate. She and a colleague then opened a general law practice, where she concentrated on tax and corporate law and served as the office manager. Beginning in 2004, Deanna performed contract work for various law firms and accounting firms, providing her the flexibility to spend time with her daughter and follow her dream of creating My Heritage Book.
Deanna is an active fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and has served on the committee for its signature event, Relay for Life, for the past four years. She enjoys spending her free time with her husband, Scott, and children, Samantha and Nicholas. When she is not spending time with her family, Deanna enjoys traveling, reading, and writing.
