Fun Facts About Denise

Spare Time: When I'm not spending time with my family or friends, I like to make/build things with my hands, be outdoors, or do absolutely nothing. Doing nothing is very healthy in my books. 

Favorite Books:  I don't think I can narrow it down to only one. Leadership books and Biographies are of most interest to me. Certainly, the Bible tops the list. 

Best Invention: Prosthetics

What you love about Vanguard:  Everyone that walks these halls are so different; personalities, cultures, history, etc. Yet, we are gathered here in the name of God. Only God could bring us all together here in this very specific time and space. That has to be one of the most amazing things about Vanguard.
