Denise has always had an affinity for technology – in particular, personal computers. She blames this on early "Star Trek" exposure - a weekly family activity when she was young. Over the years, she dabbled in programming and computer repair. During the early eighties, she worked with microcomputers and took a couple of computer programming courses.
The year 2012 is when she decided to make computers a serious pursuit. She enrolled in the Community College of Rhode Island to pursue a Web Technologies Certificate, which she received in 2014. Along with a review of the Microsoft Office Suite, she acquired new skills with Photoshop, HTML, CSS, Computer Forensics and Systems Analysis and Design.
Denise is passionate about community involvement and has volunteered in numerous ways over the years. Currently, she is serving as a Board Member for the Lake Morey Protective Association in Fairlee, Vermont, which is dedicated to preserving the pristine beauty and health of the Lake and its vicinity.
Denise has lived in Rhode Island since 1983 after moving from New Hampshire. She is married to husband Jeff Johnson and has two adult children, Damien and Emily. She loves spending time at their lake cottage in Vermont, where you can often find her on her front porch with laptop in front of her. Denise loves adventure travel, and she and her family have shared many thrilling experiences such as rafting the Colorado through the Grand Canyon, riding horses out on the open range in Wyoming, and on safari in the Serengeti. Denise enjoys reading (especially science fiction), music, hiking, cycling, cooking, gardening and archery.
