extraordinary faith-based holistic health & wellness company

||She loves to motivate and encourage others to navigate their |
healing journey and reach healthier lifestyle goals. You can find
her on most social media platforms. She is currently working on
her first book, “Been There. Done That... But There’s Got to Be
More!” an autobiography.
||Denae has had to battle and overcome many isolated challenges in |
life. Those include a "domestic abusive marriage and multiple
abusive relationships," fighting a system to return an abducted
son from the other parent, suffering severely with mental health
issues, self medicating through the addiction to crack, cocaine,
marijuana, opiate pain pills, crystal meth and heroin,
cigarettes, alcohol and misaligned oppressive connections.
She tried hard to get rid of the pain from rejection and
abandonment from those whom she thought were close to her. She
tried three times to get admitted into rehab on her own but was
turned away each time. She has also had to watch and care for her
Dad who passed away from cancer. The many struggles and
insurmountable amounts of pain warranted going to the source of
her healing, which was God! She cried, pleaded, and labored unto
the Lord for her healing and HE heard her cry and healed her. She
is now filled with love, peace, and joy. She now has the duty to
be a light unto someone else's life through her gifted hands,
loving heart, and life experiences.
||As the reigning Ms. Universe International, her mission is to |
support people like her who face similar challenges, hardships,
and inequalities. They now have a voice and advocate. Her prayer
is to help others overcome pitfalls and start the healing process
and maintain healthy lifestyles. Denae is both proud and humbled
to represent the women of the world.
