Read her most recent article in Authority Magazine to get a glimpse of Denise’s philosophy on life, business and finding purpose in life: 

In November of 2001, Denise married her true love and best friend, Cary. Twenty plus years, three children and multiple dogs later, their love and joy have grown.

When she isn’t traveling to New York, Chicago, Vegas for a conference for her businesses, she is enjoying a glass of wine and a good meal out, kicking butt at Barre, raising money for her favorite charities.

From planning her own wedding, combined with her love for wanting to create the same experience for other brides that The Persnickety Bride was born.
