Dennise moved to New England, sight unseen, in 2018 from Portland, Oregon - and she LOVES her new home. She is the mother of Lila who is a young adult embarking on her life as a college student this fall. Dennise has enjoyed a varied career, ranging from nonprofit work to community radio management to now owning her own business - CTD Creative Consulting - where she provides relationship marketing strategy support to women solopreneurs who seek to be seen and heard in the digital space. She is also a big fan of giving back and supports several nonprofits in her community: New England Basecamp, Wilbury Theatre, ReEntry Campus, Social Enterprise Greenhouse, and Preserve Rhode Island. She is also a podcaster once serving as the host of Artclectic New England - a show she created and produced in 2018/2019 featuring local arts and culture organizations and thought leaders. She is currently the host and producer of BroadBand the Podcast - a show featuring the wisdom of women entrepreneurs. Dennise is the founder of Amplification Allies, an intentional peer networking group for women that focuses on peer marketing support strategies for women-owned B2B enterprises. She loves living the fullest life possible and hosts a women's social group called Dames Who Do RI that hikes, dines, and attends other fun events in the community. Relatively recently, she stepped into the world of background acting where you can spot her in the ballroom scene of the final episode of Season One of The Gilded Age and she loves sharing a good story as a performer at Kismet Improv.
