"Denise is an exceptionally adept creative person, skilled in visual presentation for print, online, displays, and more. She provides award-worthy visual solutions, and those solutions meet the business goals set out for them. Above all, she is great to work with: good feedback, positive questions and answers, and always a positive attitude. I would work with her again gladly and recommend her without reservation." –Rob Neilley, Editor

"Denise and I have worked on a handful of creative projects together over the past few years. She is an anomaly to me because she is not only a creative, but she is also a behind the scenes, attention to detail/on point business woman. Another quality that stands out over anyone else I have ever worked with, is her ability to manage a situation seamlessly. She quietly moves from a leadership role, to an easy to mange role; I love that about her. She can see the holes that need to be filled, and quietly, without any need for praise, get the holes filled and sit back and be happy that something beautiful was created." –Tamara Young, Owner Consign Couture
