Dena was raised in the Carolinas. After more than ten years working as a professional singer, she decided to switch passions and work in veterinary medicine. In 2002 she started working at a large emergency practice in Mississippi helping patients and assisting clients until moving to Fort Mohave in 2007.

She and her son Lane share their home with their dogs Jovie, Ivan, and Olive who are all rescues. Dena enjoys DIY projects, shopping for the best deal, and has a song for everything! She also sang for our troops in Korea in the 90’s to boost morale!
