Denise Brock, Operations Director
Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE)
Seattle
WA

Denise has over 30 years of varying experience in and out of the healthcare arena.  In August 2009 she joined The Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education as one of its first employees.  She has grown with the organization and now oversees the operational movement of programs, efficiency, and effectiveness within the organization, as well as the daily processes and functions.  

 

Denise found GRACE as a caregiver and friend of a patient of Dr. West in 2009.  She quickly came to see that GRACE was filling a great need in the area of cancer education, and had so much potential to reach people dealing with a cancer diagnosis to provide a safe place to ask questions and help them understand their journey. 

 

The work she does for GRACE is a labor of love, not only for those she has been personally close to but for all those people who become part of the GRACE community, new and old.  She has come to love this organization and all of the people she has seen come and go throughout her years here. 

 

Denise holds degrees in Sociology and Philosophy and has a background in fine arts.  She loves to write, paint, camp in the Washington summers, putter around her home with her menagerie of animals and her husband, and live vicariously through her now 20-year-old sophomore in college daughter.  She lives north of Seattle where she spends her time gathering with family and friends, holding those dear to her close to her heart.
