CEO & Founder
Partake Foods

Living and working near New York City. Denise and her family are always on the go. When Vivienne, her daughter, was diagnosed with severe food allergies as an infant, she and her husband came up short on healthy snacks that were safe to eat and delicious. Frustrated by the lack of options, Denise left her corporate job and set out to make her own. And that’s how Partake was born. As a Black female CEO & founder, Denise is passionate about raising awareness of Black and female entrepreneurship and increasing opportunity for women and people of color seeking careers in the food industry. Food and beverage has a colorful future, and Denise is dedicated to mentoring up and coming leaders and students excited to forge their paths in the industry.
