Denise Benoit

Denise began attending UUSGS in 2008 and became a member with her husband, John, and daughter, Emilia, in 2009.

Denise has always enjoyed learning and her career path that reflects this. From music education and music therapy, to managing residences and foster homes for adults and children with intellectual disabilities, to massage therapy and an MBA in health care management, she has given both sides of her brain an intellectual workout!

Denise has volunteered at UUSGS in many ways: as a choir member, in Family Ministry, on the Auction Committee and as a Soulful Supper cook-team leader, to name a few. Volunteering has been a great way to meet people, feel connected and be part of a joint effort.

In her free time, Denise enjoys being out-of-doors, whether it be at the beach, taking a bike ride or walking through the woods. She also enjoys knitting for a cause (prayer shawls, etc.) Denise looks forward to growing into her new role at UUSGS, and is grateful for the opportunity to share her talents with the congregation.
