Dena lives in Grand Blanc with her husband, Chris, her daughter (a smart and sassy preschooler), and her daughter's BFF, a grumpy-but-sweet old lady cat named Luna. She works full-time as a children’s librarian in Lapeer and volunteers with her local Great Start Collaborative, the Michigan Library Association, and other organizations to help make the world a better place for kids. Dena grew up in Metro Detroit and spent six years in Massachusetts before moving to Grand Blanc in 2016. She loves spending time with her family, exploring local parks and museums, reading children’s books, trying new restaurants, and checking out a trivia night every once in a while.
