Denise made a large impact wherever she went.  She graduated Clover Park High School in 1971 and stayed friends with some of  her classmates through the years.  She prioritized her family, and was a loving volunteer and worshiper with her church community.  Denise was successful in her professional endeavors whether it be owning a busy restaurant and gift shop, selling real-estate and title insurance, or her true purpose and passion in the fitness world.  She started personal training and competitive body building at the age of 50 after her first bout with cancer.  She went on to win many competitions and change many lives.  She was a sister, mother, mentor, coach, trainer and friend.  She will be greatly missed by all the lives she has touched.
