Denise serves SSBC as a Summit Salon Consultant. From a very young age, she managed the books of her father’s thriving business. Now with over 30 years in the beauty industry, Denise commands one of the most successful blended Salon and Day Spas in the Bay Area that oversees over 30 plus stylists and employees. Her commitment to providing excellence to her clients, stylists, and employees led her to Summit Salon Business Center in 2013 and ultimately toward becoming a Summit Salon Consultant.

Denise is extremely well-versed in salon management, finance and budget management, strategic planning, and business development. However, if you ask her stylists and employees, they would say that her best business attributes are her attention to detail, her kind and patient way of teaching, coaching, and her incredible knack for inspiring excellence and passion when it comes to beauty.
