Denise’s research focuses on entrepreneurship, technology innovation, social impact and pedagogy. Her work has been recognized with multiple accolades, including an Emerald Citation of Excellence Award, the Fritz Roethlisberger Memorial Award and an Emerald Outstanding Paper Award. She is a co-founder of Pavilion Intelligence, where she drives collaboration and research to develop new methods for personalization. She lives by the quotes, “Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘Wahoo, what a ride!’” and “helping others is not self-sacrifice but self-fulfillment.” She has worked as an EMT, studied overseas six times, majored in Spanish and biopsychology, competed as pro wakeboarder and was a member of the 2008 Olympic Windsurfing team. She received her Ph.D. from Texas A&M University and MBA from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College.
