Nine years ago, you might have met Denise at Kaleidoscope's old location in the Lennox Town Center - as a youth participant. Today, you'll find her at the current location - as an intern.
The OSU graduate and 1st year masters of Social Work student from Columbus is happy to be returning to KYC in this new role. "There's a lot more work that goes into this than I ever thought," laughs Denise. "You're definitely busy."
Denise is no stranger to busy herself. In addition to her studies, she works for a mental health private practice and is raising two dogs - Chase, a low-key labrador/husky mix and Rupert, a mutt who loves to play and bark - and a cat, Binx, with her partner, Britknee. When not indulging in snuggle parties at home, Denise enjoys reading, running and writing and hopes to publish a children's book and a novel.
As an avid reader and writer, it's no surprise that Denise's favorite space in the Center is the library. She also counts Tuesday night's discussion group as her favorite weekly programming.
Kaleidoscope is incredibly fortunate to have Denise join us. We look forward to all of the amazing ways she will help KYC grow.
