Get to Know Daejah – Our New Business Development Coordinator

A common characteristic you’ll see among estate planning professionals is that they have a strong desire to help others. Some of us have faced our own probate horror stories that led us to the field, while others learned how much of a difference they can make in others’ lives through estate planning. Every team member does everything possible to help our clients meet their estate planning needs. We brought our former receptionist, Daejah, back to our team a few months ago as our new business development coordinator.

Daejah joined our team with a wealth of experience working in various fields. After working in a few different industries, Daejah decided to start her own business called Fire and Desire, where she made all-natural soy candles. In October 2021, Daejah, unfortunately, lost her little sister. She stopped making candles and began looking for a career where she could assist other people and make a difference in their lives. She learned about Shoup Legal, researched, and chose to work with us after learning about our efforts to help our clients.

When we experience change in our lives, we’re not always quick to update our estate plans. Thankfully, Daejah is here to provide guidance and assistance to our clients. She’ll regularly connect with clients to answer any questions and ensure their estate plans are still up-to date. She’s also working diligently to connect with other businesses in the community so we can build a network of trustworthy professionals for you in case you need something outside our scope of services. Daejah keeps herself exceptionally busy while away from work. She’s currently studying real estate at MSJC. Daejah is passionate about food and loves to cook new cuisines. She also enjoys music and would have no problem listening to her favorite songs every hour of the day. When she’s not enjoying her favorite hobbies, you will likely find her spending time with her family and her energetic puppy, Oswald.

We’re so excited to have Daejah back on the team and can’t wait to see what the future holds for her!
