Get to Know Denise:
What is the best advice you have ever received?
The best advice I have ever received would have to be from my grandmother, Nora Waters. She was a feisty English born woman who told me NEVER let anyone stand in your way or stop you from pursing what you want in life. Strive to do the very best you can and always be proud of what you have accomplished.
What is the best book you’ve ever read?
The best book I have ever read was Born to Run, the Autobiography of Bruce Springsteen. Being a “Bruce” fan since the 1970’s, it was so interesting, heart-warming and sad at times to read about Bruce’s life, from childhood to the present day which includes the good, the bad and the ugly. He supports many charities and foundations and for years has played benefits concerts to support not only our country in times of need but other countries as well. He is certainly a respected humanitarian in my eyes.
Who has had the greatest influence on your life and why?
I believe my mom had the greatest influence on my life. She taught me to be a strong, independent, and confident woman and to speak your mind when you needed to. She always said stay positive, never give up and whatever you face in this lifetime whether good or bad, there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. She was right!
