Reverend Denese is an ordained Unity minister that has served many Unity ministries in the California area. Her joy is discovering for herself and others, the awakened consciousness within us that is ready to be known and experienced. To search for the Divine essence of who we are; and to discover the spark of the Divine that is in our hearts.

She has recently created a Rite of Passage Program working with teens within spiritual communities that honors the awakened spirit through a 2 year program that supports the youth through ceremony, classes, celebration, and intergenerational connection.

She works with her partner, Reverend Larry Schellink, also a Unity minister. Rev Denese has two sons, age 24 and 14 that are both great teachers and awakened souls.

She also enjoys working with women through her organization, "Women Without Walls", and you can access the workshops through her website.
