Denise’s love of dogs started at the age of five when her parents brought home the first family German Shepherd named Princess. She quickly learned they are a breed who loves people and should not be feared. She has been close to all the family Shepherds over the years, especially the current one, Zena! Denise is an organization change and leadership expert who has successfully started and run a small business consulting firm in the District of Columbia for the last 20 years. She brings to the team seasoned experience in customer relationship management, business/financial management, marketing, employee development, and organization effectiveness/efficiency.
