Denise Perreault is a writer and mother, originally hailing from Saint Paul, Minnesota. Growing up as one of seven siblings, Denise was no stranger to hard work. Each family member was expected to contribute to household duties, and Denise quickly learned she excelled in many areas. Her first job was with a local cleaning company, which serviced homes and small businesses around Saint Paul, eventually becoming the company's youngest manager. It was there that she learned many of the tips and business practices that serve her well today.

Following high school, Denise relocated to the NYC area, earning a Bachelor's degree in communications. It was during this time that she discovered her passion for writing, merging that with her previous business experience as a professional cleaner.

Denise has joined the CBS team as an educational outreach writer, sharing her tips, experience, and love of service. She lives in the NYC area with her husband, 2 boys, and their dog Jake.
