Denise Penagos

Denise lives and works in NYC and is a first-generation Colombian-American, living the dreams that her parents envisioned for her years ago. She grew up not far from the city in Westchester County and is now 10 years into a healthy PR career, where she manages consumer tech, food, and financial clients. Living in NYC has given Denise the opportunity to jumpstart her passions – or side hustles, of teaching Pilates and getting certified as an Interior Decorator from NYIAD. With a past in Boston and Los Angeles, Denise hopes to keep soaring in NYC and eventually end up in Southern California by the water where she can work on her writing, fitness, and passion for interior design.
