I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Denise for more than a decade. Every time I assign her a story I walk away patting myself on the back for making such a great decision. I know that she’ll deliver well-researched, creative copy that captures the tone of the magazine, is reader-friendly, and, above all, imparts new and useful information. In short: she’s the best.

Denise not only pitches great ideas, I can count on her to deliver pieces with her trademark wit and verve, even when it's a quick turnaround.

For several years, I worked with Denise on her Mommy Confidential column in American Baby. Pregnant women and new moms got her girlfriend-y, spot-on, in-the-trenches advice about everything from playground bullies to intrusive in-laws. Denise is an absolute gem and a pleasure to work with!
--Tricia O'Brien, Features Editor, American Baby

"I'm still upset about the last time I saw you. I know, I know, it was more than a decade ago by now. And it's taken me forever to apologize, but just know that all this time, I've not been pleased with myself because of it. I let you down. I haven't even been to your grave yet, and I can no longer keep making the excuse that I'm here in New York and you're buried way up in Maine, near your parents' cabin and that lovely lake."
From Denise's essay, Like a Rock
"...I understand just enough about geology to know that it takes millions of years for carbon, pressed deep in the earth, to turn into diamonds. And I also know that the same earth that produces the sparkly stones is not so solid. It's on the move all the time, giant plates shifting under foot while we pretend it's safe.."
