Manager of Patient and Family Food Security Assistance
Denise is the Manager of Patient and Family Food Security Assistance, responsible for supervising the Foundation’s Food Security Assistance. In addition, she seeks connections with other organizations addressing food insecurity to give JAF patient grant recipients additional resources.
Denise works to alleviate a cancer patient’s journey through sending grocery gift cards. She loves knowing that whenever a JAF Food Security grant is sent to a patient, they’ll have relief and hope waiting in their mailbox.
Before arriving at JAF in May 2021, Denise worked as a meeting and event planner within various industries. She is also a former volunteer at JAF events, including the annual gala and Team JAF outings. Fun fact about Denise? She recently traced her family ancestry and discovered she is a 9th-generation Bostonian, which includes her large extended family and more than 50 first cousins.
