Denise is Lorna's daughter and the cousin of Tamara Chipman. She first became involved with MMIWG awareness when the inquiry came to Richmond BC. After hearing so many heartbreaking stories, she wanted to do more, but didn't know how. Fortunately, her Mom and Birgitte were taking care of this part.
Denise has a background in business, having owned an award winning floral design company, a beading "side hustle", working as a voice actor narrating books and e-learning courses and starting The Frog Radio, a station devoted to Indigenous music of all genres from Turtle Island. All this experience is what makes her perfect for the job of coordinator.
