As The Wealth Steward’s Investment Officer, Denise is responsible for monitoring and rebalancing client portfolios and executing trades. She oversees our process to help ensure that client portfolios remain on track.
As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, Denise works directly with clients to help them feel secure in their financial future as they accomplish their goals. Denise, partnered with Allie Stea, formed The Wealth Stewards for Women, to serve independent and newly single women with their unique financial needs. Together, they help women successfully transition through life events such as retirement, divorce, and the death of a loved one. Committed to empowering women on their financial journey, Denise also serves as a financial education facilitator for the YWCA’s Prosperity Program.
Denise attended Arizona State University where she earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Public Administration. She worked for ten years as a Performance Auditor for the State of Arizona. After having her second son, Denise decided to pause her professional life and stay at home full-time. During this time, she volunteered extensively at her sons’ school, building a library and substitute teaching. In 2016, she resumed her career at The Wealth Stewards. She has since earned her Series 7 and 66 securities licenses, is a registered insurance agent, and finally, earned the CFP® designation. She lives in downtown Tempe with her husband Andrew and looks forward to her son’s visits home from college. Denise has an extensive travel bucket list which she hopes to resume checking off places soon!
