Dena is a Southern California native who has called New Mexico home for 15 years. She met her husband in college who made her fall in love with the southwest. She is a doctor of audiology with a special place in her heart for the pediatric population, which only intensified as she became a mom to her son (2018) and daughter (2020). Dena loves snuggling her fur baby (who is a pitsky rescue), trying new foods, binge watching sci-fi shows, and spending time outdoors with her family.
