As the parent of a child who spent the majority of her life in a hospital, she knows how important it is for patients and their families to remain together during prolonged hospitalizations. Throughout her career Denise was able to develop perseverance, trust, independence, and confidence — tools that she needed more than ever when life put her in one of the hardest paths, and tools that she now uses to reach the hearts of patients, families and hosts. Denise loves spending time with her two children and husband, enjoys traveling, discovering new places and cultures. Contact Denise by email
