Denise lives in Auburn with her husband, their 19-year old son,
two cats, and one Hawaiian Hound; yes, he is from Kauai. Denise
has over 25 years of experience in different child care programs;
family child care, inclusion preschool, community college child
development center, and state-funded programs. She has a
Bachelors in Early Childhood Education, an Associates in Child
Development, and a Site Supervisor Permit.
On her off time, she enjoys spending time with her two grandsons, boating, hiking, paddle boarding, and gardening. Denise also recently rediscovered how much she enjoys completing embroidery projects!
The best thing about working at the Children’s Center is: watching the smile on a child’s face when they have discovered something new.
