After a successful career in technology, Denise wanted to get involved helping young athletes and school sports programs that were experiencing the financial burden for young athletes to play sports. To fulfill that need, Denise brought to Georgia the Sports Image Inc. franchise (2014-2019), a sports marketing company that connects businesses with community involvement events and recreation programs through sponsor-generated funds. This benefited our sponsors giving them a distinct advantage for community exposure through innovative activation activities, such as onpremise engagement and social media marketing and benefited school athletic programs by providing much needed funding. Over the past 15 years, Denise has enjoyed training and participating in triathlon and running races, completing over 13 running races, 3 half marathons, 3 half Ironman’s and over a dozen triathlon’s.
