Denise and her husband, Carl, have deep roots in Arlington, having lived here for over 25 years. When they first arrived as a young family from Galveston, they chose Arlington primarily because of its renowned public schools. They always viewed it as their duty to give back to the community and have put that into action in Arlington ever since they first moved there. Their love for their community was so profound that they convinced Carl's parents to move from Illinois to Arlington to be closer to their beloved grandkids.
"We wanted to provide our children with the opportunity to grow up in a community where they could have lifelong friends, something neither of us had the chance to experience growing up. We've been incredibly fortunate to witness our family thrive in Arlington, and it's been a joy to see how Arlington itself has grown and evolved around us."
