My History
Denise is from Arroyo Grande, California. We have lived on the Central Coast for 25 years and the beach never gets old. I'm really blessed to have a fantastic husband, 2 wonderful kids and a beautiful 8 month old granddaughter. Stuart and I love to go to the beach, travel, garden and enjoy the outdoors. We've enjoyed traveling to England, France, Italy, Spain, Turkey and Greece - the people, architecture and culture of these countries are unique and wonderful to explore.

Last year, I accomplished 2 bucket list items - we went to Cuba (probably one of our most exciting and beautiful trips) and to a Garth Brooks concert at the Forum, where we went backstage and met with him, sat next to the stage for his concert, and he then proceeded to pay for our whole trip - he is definitely a class act.

I retired 2 years ago after being in the medical field for almost 50 years! I was the Director of Quality Improvement at several hospitals in the San Luis Obispo area and for the final 12 years of my 'work life' - I was the Chief Operating Officer for a clinic system that has 28 clinics and 5 mobile units that provide medical and dental care in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.

But, it was amazing how easily I slipped into retirement and enjoy my time with family. I'm definitely in an interesting time of life - taking care of our 9 month old granddaughter a couple days a week and taking care of my parents, age 92. I moved them up here and they live on their own, but my mother suffers from Alzeheimer's. So on one hand, some days I deal with diapers and on the other days I deal with Depends! All in all, a very blessed life!

Current Interests
I love the beach, walking trails in San Luis Obispo County, traveling anywhere, and my wonderful family. We'll be going on a cruise in November to the Western Carribean and Mayan ruins, and in May we're taking the whole family to Ireland, Scotland and England, WOW!
