Denisse is in her second year of MOPS with us at MQP after moving to Sammamish a few years ago. She serves as one of the MOPPET steering leaders. She was born and raised in Houston, Texas and is the youngest of two. Denisse’s parents are both from Mexico and moved to the US 36 years ago.
She went to school at the University of Texas at San Antonio, and obtained a degree in Communications. After college & before beginning a new chapter in her life as stay-at-home mom, Denisse worked in sales for the US Army.
She met her now husband, Andrew (Drew) her freshman year of college while he was stationed at Ft. Hood Army base. Drew’s sister worked with Denisse & she wanted to play match maker! She’d been telling Denisse that she wanted them to meet since Denisse was 16… When they finally did meet, they had a long distance relationship for 2.5 years & were finally married in November of 2002. She’s now been an Army wife for 15 years & has been to Ft. Lewis, WA (2002-2006), Huntsville, AL (4 months), Picatinny Arsenal, NJ (2006-2010), Ft. Worth, TX (2010-2011), Huntsville, AL (4 months), and back to Washington. They now have two beautiful girls ages 5.5 (Olivia) and 2.5 (Emma). Olivia just began kindergarten this year and Emma just started preschool.
For fun, Denisse loves to travel, hit the beach, workout & spend time with her family.
