Inspirational Voice for Survivors of Bullying, Sexual Abuse and Loss

Deshauna Barber is a former Miss USA and award-winning international speaker, coach, and entrepreneur with a bold approach to inspiring and encouraging her audience. Deshauna uses her experience as an Army officer, Non-Profit CEO, former Miss USA, and STEM graduate to inspire her audience. Deshauna shows the power of perseverance and tenacity to now become a top-rated speaker that is widely sought after by Fortune 500 companies. She currently works full time as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Service Women’s Action Network, the nation’s leading 501c3 nonprofit organization advocating on behalf of all service women and women veterans in the country.  


Deshauna is currently receiving her Diversity, Social Justice and Inclusion Certification at University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.

As Miss USA, she spent her year-long reign advocating for our men and women in uniform by encouraging our government to provide additional support for soldiers suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

When she is not serving her country, she travels the world as a full time Motivational Speaker. She has made it her life goal to encourage, inspire and strengthen the people around her.

Thank you so much for your contributions to this year’s BRAVE Summit! We just wanted to express how meaningful your participation was, and in just hearing some feedback from attendees, we know how much they enjoyed hearing you speak as well. The energy you brought to the Black Girl Joy panel really created great chemistry that cannot be duplicated. You taught everyone that sometimes someone has to break down the door so that others have the opportunity to have a seat at the table. Thank you for empowering all attendees there!
