“I’ve known Denise for years and she’s written for me at several different magazines, including Ladies’ Home Journal where she wrote some of our best, most colorful profiles. Denise is one of those freelance writers that you wish could be cloned—she knows how to report, she makes her deadline and she knows how to make even a boring subject fascinating.”

Chandra Czape
ED2010 and Talent Fairy

“More than just a great writer, Denise has her pulse on what makes for a good story, what the reader wants to know about right this moment.”

Isabel Gonzalez-Whitaker
Former Deputy Editor

“Denise worked for me as an editor at Latina magazine, and I can say without hesitation that she is one of, if not the best hire I ever made. A master multi-tasker, she was always ready to contribute to the magazine’s success by generating good ideas and writing excellent stories, all while overseeing other freelance writers, editing their copy, and overseeing several sections of the magazine. Equally important, if Denise tells you she will have a story to you by a certain date, you can take that to the bank—a huge relief to any editor who has ever worked with less-reliable freelance writers.”

Sylvia Martinez
Former Editor-in-Chief

“Denise walks away from an interview with far more than just the words her subject said. She observes the person, she delves into them—their lives, their work, their opinions. And she places them in a personal and professional context that makes the resulting story so much more than merely a profile. As a writer, she’s an editor’s best friend: flexible, thorough, accurate, reliable, and willing to do whatever it takes to nail the story.”

Amy Lovett

“Denise is an absolute pleasure to work with. A true wordsmith, she manages to meet even the tightest deadlines to deliver clear, concise, and compelling work.”

Laura Smith
Major Gifts Officer
The College of New Jersey

“Denise is one of my most reliable writers. She’s smart and insightful, and she knows what questions to ask. When I give Denise an assignment, I know I will get a quality story that’s right on the mark.”

“Denise is talented, professional and a joy to work with. Clean copy on deadline—who could ask for anything more?”

Deborah Gaines

“Denise is one of our favorite freelancers because she turns in crisp, clean copy on time. … Because of her expertise and professionalism, Denise writes most of our celebrity articles. These folks require the careful handling that I wouldn’t trust to just anyone. And these articles are often done on deadline, with just a couple of days between the interview and turning in a finished article of 1,000 or more words. I simply can’t say enough great things about her!”
