Denise was born and raised in Eastern Oregon and grew up on a large row crop farm, the second child of 8. I went to college in Idaho, took a short break and lived in Sao Paulo, Brazil for 18 months, and then came back to Idaho and finished college. I met and married my husband, Glen, in 2005. We have lived in Idaho, Oregon, Colorado, Nebraska, and then eventually back to Oregon.
We have lived in Crane, Oregon for 9 years. We have 4 kids; 3 boys–Vince, McKee, and Cam; and were blessed with a little girl in September, Sunny. My family and I love being outside! We like to hike, camp, hunt, play any kind of game, go to brandings, and just have fun!
