Her background includes local and regional firms in addition to a Fortune 500 organization.

In her time away from the office, Denise makes the most of every experience. She is a local patron of the arts through her support of museums, galleries, symphony, opera, and jazz and a community supporter of local charities and nonprofit fundraising events, animal shelters, the Jaycees, public radio and television, parks, and historical sites.

She has lived in or traveled to almost every state and can tell stories of eating lobster on the coast of Maine, staring out of the Statue of Liberty’s crown, exploring Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, marveling at the Smithsonian in DC and the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, getting lost in the cornfields of Iowa, yee-hawing at the Fort Worth rodeo, visiting the San Diego Zoo, and seeing a wild salmon run in Oregon. She is an amateur feng shui consultant, avid cook, and baker, and is also passionate about improving her dart game, even converting part of her garage into a dart room. She enjoys landscaping and helping to ensure our craft breweries and wineries stay in business.
