Having acquired what she calls her 'PhD' in Perspective, with this program Denise suggests in every unattractive Present, there is a gift and proceeds to offer how to find it. Denise gives a different report than most when sharing stories of adversity. With each presentation, she successfully leads her audiences to do the same when experiencing theirs. When her 12 year old daughter Jonnae was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 12, this dynamic mother/daughter duo decided to celebrate the gift of every day, no matter what it came wrapped in. Rather than host a pity party, they chose to experience life as a surprise party. It allowed them to experience something different than predicted - a gift in ALL things. Their perspective, resilience, and vision of using everything for a measure of good has proven to be a great motivator to audiences of every demographic. Jonnae crossed her earthly finish line in 2008. She was 15. In the years since, thanks to a son in the military and a daughter who came out in 2012 Denise has gone on to obtain her Masters in Perspective. Through all of these unexpected surprise packages, she's developed her unique perspective even further. As a result, she offers her audiences tried and true exercises to get through the not so fun parts of life's surprise party with resilience and fortitude. Her program is energized, heartfelt, and profound. She'll make you laugh, cry and propel you to find opportunity with every opposition. She'll provokes thought and inspiration for every group she speaks to and with. You'll leave your event thinking about (and responding to) adversity differently.
